Press Release

Several City of Dunkirk streets will get road preparation Thursday and Friday by City and County crews. Residents and visitors should not park on these streets. The roads included are Eagle Street between Sixth Street and Lucas Avenue, East and West Third Streets for their full lengths, McKinley Avenue between Fourth Street and Lucas Avenue, and Mullet Street between Fourth and Fifth Streets.

On Monday, August 15, the new wearing surfaces will use the time-proven chip-seal method under County bid to get more road areas covered at less cost.  After the roads are sealed, residents are asked to reduce their speed on these streets. The surface has high durability but requires rolling in of limestone and some days of curing before the surface does not require reduced speeds. The City DPW thanks residents and visitors for their cooperation and patience as these new surfaces are applied and in the days after as they cure.
