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 city’s Pavement Preservation Program runs annually from October through June. 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, MASTER SEAL, PMM, CHIP SEAL, MILL & OVERLAY, MICRO SURFACING TYPE II, and SLURRY SEAL TYPE II.
The first treatment, which is either TRMSS, MASTER SEAL or PMM, 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.
