Beginning in early April, crews will make structural, permanent patches to the road to cost-effectively maintain roadway structural integrity. The project is expected to take two to three weeks, weather permitting. Work will be performed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. 
  • Kensington Heights, Kensington, concrete repair project will fix concrete curbs, gutters and sidewalks; replace defective sections of curbs or sidewalks; ensure structural integrity and proper drainage; and remove tripping hazards. Residents can take advantage of discounts for concrete work under the driveway apron and lead walk repair program. The project will begin in early April and is expected to take six to eight weeks, weather permitting. Work will occur between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
