The Public Works Department’s Pavement Preservation Program is an annual program in which identified city streets receive appropriate applications to lengthen the life of the street surface.
The FY16 Pavement Preservation Program runs October 26 – June 30. Links to the street schedule and area maps are located to the right. Residents living in areas targeted for treatment will receive 48 hour notice before the work begins via a door hanger. Contact information for residents requiring special assistance during the street treatments will be provided on the door hangers.
The street treatments include TRMSS, CHIP SEAL, MILL & OVERLAY, MICRO SURFACING TYPE II, and SLURRY SEAL TYPE II.
The first treatment, known as TRMSS is a tire rubber modified, asphalt emulsion surface sealer which provides wear and weather resistance superior to that of any other sealer. CHIP SEAL is a pavement surface treatment that combines layers of asphalt with layers of fine aggregate that extends the life of the pavement and provides a good driving surface. MICRO SURFACING is applied to inhibit raveling and oxidation, as well as improving surface friction and filling minor irregularities and rutting in a roadway. SLURRY SEAL is a good solution for roads that are in the early stage of deterioration. MILL & OVERLAY requires milling the existing roadway down 1”-2” and installing a new asphalt surface to extend the life and avoiding a compete remove and replace.
Residents can expect street restrictions during the treatment, however there will not be any complete street closures.
