Pavement crack sealing

Road construction crew

Road work continues throughout the City with pavement crack sealing underway from Thursday, August 22, 2019 to about Friday, November 1, 2019.

Pavement crack sealing is one of the services that’s part of maintaining roads. Depending on the condition of road, it may be slated for crack sealing, pot hole filling, micro surfacing, resurfacing or a full reconstruction.

Pavement crack sealing can help extend the life of the road before it needs resurfacing or a full reconstruction. It prevents the infiltration of water into the pavement and structure that’s under the road.

Falcon Road Services Inc. is the company that’s doing the pavement crack sealing work in the City this year. The schedule may change depending on factors such as weather conditions.

Roads aren’t expected to be closed for the work, but traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on main roads and reduced to one lane on local streets when work is being done on those streets.
