May 12, 2021:

The Contractor for the City of Jordan’s 2021 Infrastructure Improvements Project will be reclaiming (grinding up) 4th Street from Rice Street to Broadway Street and Wood Street from 4th Street to Wood Circle on Wednesday, 5/12/21. Parking will not be allowed on the street during working hours (7am – 7pm). Vehicles must be moved prior to the start of working hours. Should a vehicle be parked on the street during working hours, it will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Reclaiming involves grinding up the existing roadway and gravel base underneath the pavement into a new blended gravel base. This gravel base will be drivable until the roadway is repaved.

Please note that this schedule is tentative and subject to change due to weather. No parking signage will be installed within the project area. Parking on Wood Street & 4th Street can resume once the signage is removed. Access to driveways will be maintained during construction. Residents should expect delays while entering/exiting the project site, so please plan ahead.
