Project # 11 Cracksealing

Project Description
There have been tremendous increases in the costs that the City pays for resurfacing our roads in the past few years. It has therefore become cost prohibitive to complete a pavement overlay on our roadways every time they start to show wear. The purpose of cracksealing is to seal the cracks in roads that are still in relatively good condition in order to keep water from intruding into the road bed and causing severe pavement failures. Adding this important preventative maintenance technique can preserve a road pavement for many years in order to keep the amount of expensive pavement overlays needed to a minimum.

Status
The project is almost complete.
