Summer 2022 Mill & Overlay
Mill and overlay is the road construction process where the current road surface is taken up, reground and the material is used to repave the road surface. The process is quick with drivers able to use the road in the same day. The city has a schedule of roads for the summer 2022 mill and overlay. The work will take place in August. If you have questions, please call the city at 952.960.7900.
