Pavement Preservation 2022
Pavement Preservation is a preventative maintenance treatment that extends the life of the road surface in an economical way, while minimizing the inconvenience to residents and the traveling public while the work is taking place. Over the long-term, it is less expensive to maintain the road surface than to reconstruct it when it fails. Below please find our Pavement Preservation Road Work List that shows the repair method scheduled on each road.

These repair methods are further described below:
Crack Sealing: Crack Sealing is the placement of a sealant material into cracks of an existing pavement surface to prevent excess water and moisture from penetrating the asphalt. This is a preventative measure to keep the road from deteriorating further. Crack Sealing can be done as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other treatments listed below. The Crack Sealing treatment cools in minutes and does not require road closures.
Fog Sealing: A Fog Seal is a thin liquid layer applied to the surface of a paved road in relatively good condition. The intent of this treatment is to seal the pavement, rejuvenate and restore the wearing surface, and provide resistance to deterioration due to the weather and sun. After a Fog Seal, the cracks are sealed with a liquid asphalt sealer. Fog Sealing typically requires minimal preparation, and only a few hours of road closure the day of the treatment.
Microsurfacing: A Microsurfacing is a thin layer (3/8”) preventative maintenance treatment applied to an existing paved surface in two layers. This treatment adds a tough wearing coat that will seal and protect the existing pavement and give it a new friction course. Crack Sealing is applied to the pavement prior to Microsurfacing. Some of the cast iron structures in the street may be adjusted to final grade prior to application if deemed necessary. Minor pothole patching and other pavement repairs are also done prior to installation of this treatment.
