What to Expect

Once the contractor places cones and temporary “No Parking” signage in front of your residence or business, the work is scheduled to begin within the next 24 hours. Keep in mind that weather or equipment problems may cause delays. Typical work hours are 7 a.m to 7 p.m. Access to driveways may be limited at times during the work. Residents who need accommodations are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible.

  • Emergency access will be maintained at all times.
  • There will be heavy machinery, loud noises, dust, and vibrations throughout the repaving process.
  • Night time paving may be allowed in some locations depending on traffic impacts and noise variances.
  • There may be lane closures or lane shifts to accommodate work.

Please use caution when driving in areas of heavy equipment, especially if you live on or near a cul-de-sac.

Keep in Mind

  • Fresh pavement is hot, oily and extremely sticky.  To remove sticky tar or asphalt from car or shoes, use fresh soap and water or a citrus-based cleaner. Do not use petroleum-based cleaners.
  • During the first year after treatment on hot summer days, Slurry Seal can become soft. This is normal and to be expected. 

How You Can Help

  • Please obey all temporary placed “No Parking” signs in the work areas.
    • Vehicles causing work obstruction may be towed to an adjacent street without "No Parking" signs.
  • Avoid new pavement when walking.

Types of Pavement Treatments

The work will consist of various types of pavement treatments. The chosen treatment is determined based on the roadway’s existing structure.

The treatment types are:

  • Crack Seal - seals cracks to protect from water intrusion and other damaging factors.
    • One of the most cost effective preventative maintenance strategies in reducing asphalt deterioration and prolonging pavement life.
  • Cape Seal - chip seal (see below) combined with a slurry seal that makes the material more durable and smoother.
  • Slurry Seal - thin restorative surface treatment that extends the useful life of asphalt by keeping air and water out and stopping oxidation. 
  • Hot Chip Seal - combination between a liquid asphalt emulsion and a thin layer of open graded friction course (rock). This process provides a durable surface and waterproof membrane that will improve the existing asphalt.
  • Mill & Overlay - grinding down the existing roadway, sometimes just edges, and other times the whole width of the road.  Removes old asphalt (either mill or full removal), place structural subgrade material (if applicable), conduct full-depth patching of damaged asphalt, place the full-width overlay of asphalt.
    • Lane markings will be placed after the asphalt is replaced. The timing of this work may vary.
  • Full Reconstruction - includes removing the entire roadway structure repairing sub base roadway material, then replacing with all new intermediate and overlay courses of asphalt.
  • Concrete Replacement  - concrete is replaced when feasible in areas where asphalt work has been completed in previous paving seasons.
