2017 Residential Rehabilitation - Asphalt Sealing

Updated July 31, 2017

Scope of Work

This is a pavement preservation project intended to extend the life of the asphalt street. When the aging process is halted early in the life cycle of the pavement, maintenance is less invasive and much less expensive. According to Federal Highway Administration data, up to 80% of pavement flexibility is lost during the first five years which leads to pavement cracking. By sealing the existing cracks and applying sealant to the entire roadway, we are able to stabilize and preserve the oil in the asphalt surface which will help retain the flexibility of the pavement and extend the life of the driving surface.

What is the Process?

First, the entire street is cleaned to ensure a clean, dry surface. Then, cracks are sealed and an asphalt emulsion is placed on the entire street. It takes approximately four to six hours to dry, depending on weather conditions; streets with shade may take longer.


Work is anticipated to begin the week of July 31, 2017. Property owners will be notified approximately two weeks in advance of work beginning on their street.

Access During Construction

No parking will be allowed on the street while work is being completed. No parking signs will be posted 24 hours in advance of work beginning. Work is expected to take two to three days per street.

Other Information for Residents in the Project Area

  • It is critical that you do not park on the street the day it is scheduled to be treated.
  • Please do not drive on the wet material. It will track onto your driveway and/or splatter on your vehicle.
  • If you absolutely need to leave your home after the street has been treated, drive very slowly through the material to the untreated or dry side of the street. Drive slowly until material has worn off your tires.
  • DO NOT drive on wet material and then drive on your driveway. It will track onto your driveway.
  • Please turn off sprinklers a day prior and on the day(s) your street will be done. This way the pavement will be dry and the product will stick and perform better.
  • Rain days and/or equipment problems may delay the work until crews are able to return.
  • We recommend you do not schedule any contractors, landscapers, or deliveries on these days.
