The Town of Bedford will begin the micro paving work on North Road, Concord Road and Page Road (from Old Billerica Road to the Lexington Town Line) on Wednesday, July 22, 2020.
Micro surfacing/ micropaving/ micropavement is a surface treatment designed to extend the life of asphalt pavements in good condition by providing skid resistance, restricting moisture intrusion, protecting the structure from further oxidation and raveling, and restoring a uniform black appearance. It fixes minor deformities in the road but isn't used for larger structural issues. As the overall condition index of Bedford's roads improves, more treatments like micro surfacing will be used as a component of the paving maintenance program.
This work will involve adjusting structures, some patching, and two layers of micro pavement. The work will be done in phases over each of the areas and is expected to last approximately 3 weeks. Police will be present while the work is being performed, but some delays and lane closures can be expected.
