Matthews, NC - The Town of Matthews is preparing to resurface several streets beginning next week and continuing through the beginning of May. These operations are part of the Town’s resurfacing program. Blythe Construction of Charlotte will be overseeing the $2.4M project.

The first step of this project was bringing all of the accessible ramps up to current ADA standards, which has been completed. The next step will be milling off the top 1.5” of asphalt from the roads. The milling is quickly followed by full-depth reclamation (FDR) for most of the roads. This process includes grinding up the remaining asphalt and stone base, then mixing it with water and cement before regrading and compacting. After allowing this layer to cure, a layer of new asphalt will be placed on top of the mixture. This reconstruction process results in brand new roads. 

Residents will have full access to their homes except for short periods of time during this process. Door hangers will be placed on doors of residences a few days prior to work starting. Residents on those streets are asked not to park on those roads while work is underway between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

 Below is a preliminary schedule for the construction activities.  All dates are subject to change.
