Annual Roads Preservation Program

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3


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 adds a coating of asphalt oil and fine crushed rock over the existing pavement to preserve the street surface and to keep the roads in good drive-able condition.

Annually, scoping is conducted to determine the roads in greatest need; specifications are produced, and advertising generally occurs in the spring/summer months. Construction is preferred during the warm weather season. Typical elements may include: asphalt Repair, overlay, chip seal and non-motorized spot improvements.
