In 2012, the City reestablished an 8 year cycle on the Seal Coat program on residential streets.
To accomplish this, the city is split into 8 areas.
Seal coating preserves the condition of the pavement by sealing the surface and small cracks within the existing asphalt pavement. When this type of preventative maintenance is used, a typical pavement may last 40 years before it needs to be reconstructed. Arterial streets (main roads) and concrete alleys are not a part of this program. Because of the heavier loads and higher traffic volume, arterial streets receive a mill and overlay as a preservation method (see mill and overlay). The City does not seal streets within 2 years of a street reconstruction project.
The seal coating program is included as a part of your Right of Way Assessment.
