Transportation’s Pavement Maintenance Program treats select streets during the summer using different types of road repair, depending on the condition of the surface.
Roads have a
life span and the life cycle of a road is affected by many factors, including weather, traffic volume and the maintenance efforts that go into preserving the road as long as possible. As roads deteriorate, they become more difficult and expensive to repair. When a road reaches the end of its life – when surface damage becomes so severe that the road bed is destroyed – it becomes necessary to replace the road, which costs up to $120 per square yard.
Hot tar is poured into or above a crack in the pavement to prevent water from entering the base layer.
Newly applied chip seal will shed rock for several weeks; this is normal and street sweeping will remove the excess gravel.
At first, chip seal has a rougher surface than asphalt, but it will get smoother over time as vehicles drive on it and will look and feel like asphalt.
A slurry seal protects, preserves and extends pavement life.
Advance notice of slurry work in the neighborhood is mailed to residents and businesses.
Micro surfacing is a preventative treatment that covers the surface of the road with a thin layer of liquid asphalt mixture.
Full depth reclamation is a construction method to rebuild failed streets by recycling the materials of the existing road.
Because the materials are used on-site, the cost is 25% to 50% less than the traditional method of removing and replacing building materials.
