LEWISTON — Public works will start sealing cracks on 11 roads Sunday, according to a news release from the city.

Road work will run nightly from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. until completed and public works expects to be finished by the end of the week, said city spokesperson Angelynne Amores.

Roads receiving preventative maintenance are Bartlett, Cedar, College, Lexington, Sabattus and Westminster streets; Old Lisbon and River roads; and Alfred Plourde Parkway, Central Avenue and Scribner Boulevard.

Work on Bartlett Street will take place between East Avenue and Birch Street; on Cedar Street, from Lisbon Street to Lincoln Street Alley; on College Street, from Montello Street to Lemieux Avenue; on Lexington Street, from Alfred Plourde Parkway to Westminster Street; on Sabattus Street, from Randall Road to Golder Road; on Westminster Street, between Lisbon and Lexington streets; on Alfred Plourde Parkway, between Pleasant and Lexington streets; on Central Avenue, from Sabattus Street to Campus Avenue; on Old Lisbon Road, from Old Webster Street to Gould Road; on River Road, from Lewiston Landfill to Ferry Road; and on Scribner Boulevard, between Lisbon and Pleasant streets.

Amores said crack sealing is a measure helping extend street pavement life by reducing and rehabilitating roadway cracks that can allow water and debris that cause damage and surface ruin. The maintenance calls for mobile closure, which means parts of a road being serviced will close or open as work progresses.

Motorists should expect minor delays and seek alternate routes, said Amores.

“The team is attempting to conduct these projects with the least amount of disruption as possible,” Amores said. “We thank drivers for their patience.”
