Overlays

  • Mills, paves and sealcoats selected city streets with new bituminous overlays.

  • Work begins in early June and completed by the end of August.

Pavement Reclamation

  • Grinds up  the existing bituminous pavement and mixes with the existing base before repaving the road.
  • Used mainly for roadways without curbs and nearly as successful as a full reconstruction at a third of the cost.
  • Work begins in early June and completed by the end of August.

Sealcoating, Crack Sealing & Street Painting

Each summer, the city seals pavement cracks; repaints lines and crosswalks; and sealcoats streets and parking lots as part of its annual street maintenance. Work typically includes:

  • Sealcoating/chip sealing
  • Crack sealing
  • Painting, symbols (crosswalks)
  • Parking lots: Fuller & First Avenue; Holmes & First Avenue
