MUSCATINE, Iowa – The Asphalt Overlay Program for Fiscal Year 2020-2021 will begin on Monday (May 3) according to the Department of Public Works. Manatt’s was awarded both the Street Asphalt Overlay Program and the Alley Asphalt Overlay Program in March.

 

Milling is expected to begin on Monday with all work expected to be completed by June 2, weather permitting. Since Manatt’s was awarded both contracts, the contractor has put together the order the sections will be milled and subsequently overlaid with asphalt.
