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

Sealcoating/chip sealing

  • Uses a mix of heated liquid asphalt and small rock to provide an effective barrier against water intrusion, aging and oxidation.
  • Can be a messy and very dusty operation. Watch for No Parking signs in impacted areas.
  • While crews sweep streets of surplus rock days and weeks after installation, some chips will continue to release over time, resulting in excess rock along curbs and in yards.

Crack sealing

  • Blows out cracks and fills with rubber. The material is then covered with biodegradable toilet paper.
  • It is okay to drive over the paper. Watch for No Parking signs in impacted areas.
  • We recommend you do not park near end of driveway to avoid rock and debris.
