ASHLAND, Ore. -- The City of Ashland is working to resurface a section of Tolman Creek Road.

The road work is happening in between Ashland Street and Siskiyou Boulevard. It started on July 24 and is expected to last for a couple of days into early next week. 

This area of Tolman Creek Road is getting a chip seal. The City of Ashland said that means a thin layer of oil and rocks are pressed down into the road. It helps to resurface the road and makes it last longer. 

Traffic will still be able to move along Tolman Creek Road in both directions, but there will be some lane closures. If this is part of your commute to work, it might take longer than normal. 

Once the chip sealing is finished, the City of Ashland said the road will be getting a fog seal. This will finish smoothing out the road and make it more water resistant. The fog seal project is expected to happen in two to three weeks. 

All of these road updates are expected to last for five to ten years. 

"What we're trying to do is do that maintenance now," said Paula Brown, the Public Works Director at the City of Ashland. "It's a little bit of an inconvenience, especially in the summer time. But by winter time we're all going to be glad that these roads are done."

Drivers should be sure to slow down in construction zones, said the City of Ashland. This helps both drivers and constructions workers stay safe.
