A fog seal is an application of asphalt emulsion over a previously chip sealed road.

Traffic regulators will be in place maintaining one-way traffic.

The streets will remain open and neighbors will have access to their driveways except when fog seal is being applied in front of their property.

Please plan for intermittent traffic disruptions, which could cause delays. Motorist are advised to seek alternate routes.

Please do not park on these streets during work hours; vehicles will be towed.
