City-wide street maintenance aimed at protecting and preserving streets is planned at several locations for the week of Sept. 26th, weather permitting. Chip sealing is a common maintenance practice where a thin layer of oil and rock is added to a road surface, sealing pavement cracks and preventing water from penetrating the road surface.
Residents and businesses along the affected roadways have been notified. The chip sealing operation typically shuts down half a street at a time. During the process traffic control personnel are onsite to protect workers and help direct traffic. Following the chip seal process it is common for small "chips" of asphalt to be slightly loose as the new layer of pavement settles. Some tracking of oil is also common, but these impacts are temporary.
