At its Monday meeting this week, the Falls Church City Council approved a contract with Finley Asphalt and Sealing for the S. West Street roadbed reconstruction project. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the original contractor became unavailable. A new company was selected per the City’s purchasing guidelines.
The project will begin soon with repairs to storm water facilities and then, in September, the roadbed reconstruction will start with a completion date in early November. Once underway, a detailed schedule with detours and temporary traffic pattern changes will be hand-delivered to affected residents and posted to the City’s website. This roadbed reconstruction will yield a greater return on investment for taxpayers than traditional paving, according to City officials. Finley Asphalt and Sealing will use a method called “full-depth reclamation,” which will help deliver the project in an efficient manner and provide access to driveways more consistently.
