Annual Roads Preservation Program

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3


The City provides annual road maintenance to preserve and protect Island roadways.  The Annual Roads Preservation program consists of a combination of 1) grinding and patching roadways and/or 2) chip sealing. Grinding and patching the roadways is a maintenance operation. Chip sealing is the process of applying a coat of asphalt oil and finely crushed rock over the existing pavement. This restores the street surface to protect the roadway from water and weather damage. Chip sealing is a cost-effective way to extend the life of a road and save significant funds on future road repair costs.

  • It is anticipated that crews will work 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the project. While crews are working, roads will be reduced to one lane with flaggers.  
  • During the chip seal process, there will be a temporary closure (with detours) along Sportsman Club Road between Finch Road and High School Road.  
  • For the days of seal coat application, and immediately after the project, the speed limit will be reduced to avoid vehicle damage from flying rocks.  Drivers are advised to go slow and travel a safe distance from the construction vehicles.
