Road work begins
(Mar 05, 2014)
Crackseal material will be applied on roadways throughout the city beginning Monday, March 10, through mid-April.
This procedure helps prevent potholes and minimize pavement damage while extending the life of surface treatments.
Winter is prime time to apply crackseal material because the cracks are open due to the cold temperatures. The cold temperature also cut down on the amount of cure time for the product, which means that motorists can drive on them in a much shorter time frame.
The city contracted with A-1 Chipseal Company to perform the work on arterial and collector streets. City street division crews will target their efforts on residential streets.
