SOUTH PORTLAND — Resurfacing of Broadway from Cottage Road to Pickett Street could alter traffic patterns this summer and for five years will prevent abutting homeowners from making utility improvements requiring Broadway to be excavated.

City Planning Director Tex Haeuser said the work will be discussed from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at the Southern Maine Community College Culinary Arts Building.

In a letter sent Monday to Broadway property owners, Haueser said there is a June 15 deadline to apply for permits requiring street excavation.

A resurfacing project on Broadway from Cash Corner to Lincoln Street will also create a five-year moratorium on excavations, but Haeuser did not specify a deadline for property owners in that area to apply for permits.
