The City of Effingham will begin a Street Resurfacing Project with Effingham Asphalt Company starting Monday, September 28. This project is being done to provide a smoother driving surface and to address any deformations, cracking and irregularities in the pavement. The streets to be repaired are Oak Street from Edgar to Fayette Avenues, and Edgar Avenue from Henrietta to Maple Streets. 

  • Phase One consists of removing and grinding up the existing asphalt. This operation should only take one to two days. Please note that your car will need to be off the street during this time and that at times there might be limited access to your property. This will begin on Monday, September 28.
  • Phase Two consists of the placement of the asphalt. The road will be closed starting at 6:30 a.m. for a 24-HOUR period to allow the new road surface to cool. Residents will not have access to their driveways and will need to find on the street parking. The road will be reopened on Saturday, October 3 at 7:00 a.m. This will begin on Thursday, October 1, tentatively.
