The City of Andover administers a street overlay program to rehabilitate and prolong the life of the City’s street infrastructure. Prairie Road from Bunker Lake Boulevard to Andover Boulevard has been identified for a mill and overlay in 2023.
An overlay helps prolong the life of the roadway and defers the need for a more expensive total reconstruction. This overlay is expected to extend the life of the streets another 15+ years before a full reconstruction would be considered.
25% of the project costs are being assessed to properties fronting the improvements. The remaining 75% of the project costs will be funded through the City’s Road and Bridge Fund, and in turn reimbursed through Municipal State Aid funds.
