Office of The Department OF Public Works
In the next few weeks a number of roads throughout the Township are scheduled for surface treatment. The process chosen for your particular road is based on the roads overall condition and is outlined below. The processes are designed to seal roadways preventing moisture from entering, adding a wear and skid resistant surface, prolonging the pavement life. All of the processes are weather dependent and may need to be rescheduled accordingly.
Signs will be posted alerting motorists to the road work a few days in advance of commencement. Residents are asked to park vehicles on adjacent streets if they will need to leave during the application time frame specified below. If you will be away during this time, we ask that you do not leave your vehicle on the street.
Residents are urged not to cross fresh applications until work is completed, this includes pedestrians and pets. The materials applied are very hot and sticky and takes time to cure. If it is necessary to cross, please test the surface before doing so, remember the surface maybe hot and sticky, so don’t use you hand.
Notification will be made in advance.
Cape seal is a two-step process incorporating both chip seal and micro surfacing processes, providing a smoother texture surface. First the chip seal is applied and allowed to cure from a few days to a few weeks depending on weather conditions. Micro surface is then applied with traffic delays as indicated above. This process blends the benefits of both processes adding years of service life to pavements.
High Performance Chip Seal:
The High performance chip seal process is similar to chip seal with a few differences. Straight asphalt is mixed with crumb rubber and applied at higher temperatures offering additional flexibility over the other processes. Aggregate is pre coated increasing adhesion and reducing dust and loose stone. This material also offers higher ambient temperature softening, meaning no bleeding during hot weather. Traffic delays due to single lane closures are minimal and are usually 5 – 15 minutes at most. This process adds a flexible, skid resistant surface with texture similar to chip seal, adding years of pavement life.
