PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT
The pavement management program was implemented in 1988. Committing to and continuing the preventive maintenance program is essential to delay the high costs associated with the deterioration of the streets to the point of major repair. Sealcoating, Mill and Overlay, and Route and Seal are the three major methods used to extend the life of City streets.

SEALCOATING
Sealcoating has been the leading cost-effective technique for slowing the deterioration of our residential streets. The sealcoating process involves applying a thin coat of emulsified oil, and then covering with rock. The excess rock then is swept.

MILL AND OVERLAY
Mill and overlay is used for streets that are in the worst condition. These roadways have deteriorated past the point where sealcoating remains effective. Mill and overlay consists of milling the top 2 inches of road and then overlaying with new asphalt.

ROUTE AND SEAL
Also called asphalt crack repair, this involves cutting existing cracks to a uniform size and filling with a hot rubberized sealant. This is performed to prevent water from entering the roadbed which causes damage during the freeze/thaw cycle

All three maintenance items are performed on a rotating basis dependant on need and schedule. This year a portion of the City streets will be sealcoated.
