The work is being done through the City’s Capital Preventative Maintenance contract. Chip seal is an effective way to extend the life of street pavement, lasting five to six years. Crews apply liquid asphalt and small stone chips, then roll over it.
The streets will remain open and neighbors will have access to their properties. Please plan for intermittent traffic disruptions, which could cause delays.
Please do not park on these streets during work hours; vehicles will be towed.
Residents on these streets will receive door hangers the day before work begins.
We appreciate everyone’s patience during this and all work to maintain our infrastructure. Neighbors on streets set for chip seal treatment should receive a postcard notifying them of this work.
