[ARCHIVED] Mill & Overlay Program Coming to City Streets

July 21, 2023 – Beginning Monday, July 24, several local streets in the City of Midland will see surface improvements as part of a mill and overlay project. 

This application involves removing and replacing the top layers of a street’s asphalt to reduce surface roughness and address minor deformations, cracking, and irregularities in the pavement surface. This process can extend the lifespan of a street’s surface by up to 10 – 15 years. 

Work will be conducted in three phases. On each street, one side of the street will be completed at a time to minimize disruption to residents and shorten the overall project duration. The following streets will receive mill and overlay treatment:

  • Foxwood Drive
