The City of Portage Street Mill and Fill Program consists of major maintenance to selected streets to enhance structural integrity and ride quality, as well as prolong the life of the street. These improvements include the removal of badly worn areas of the road and overlaying the surface with 1.5 inches of new asphalt.
Affected residents will be notified via an informational door hanger on the day prior to the scheduled construction for your specific street.
One Lane Travel
One lane of travel will remain open during the asphalt resurfacing process.
Tac Coat Warning
Residents should be aware that a “tac coat” (oily substance) is sprayed on the street prior to paving in order to bond the new asphalt to the old surface. Driving on the tac coat should be avoided as this material may attach to tires and vehicle undercarriages, and may be carried onto your driveway or garage floor.
