2020 Joint and Crack Sealing Program

The City’s 2020 joint and crack sealing program will begin in May.  The purpose of sealing joints and cracks is to prevent moisture penetration into the pavement that could cause further deterioration of the roadway and to extend the life of the pavement.  The following diagram illustrates the sections of City streets that joint and crack sealing will take place:

Residents on an affected street will receive a notice at their door the day before work is to be completed.  All cars will be asked to be removed between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm to allow the Contractor to seal all joints and cracks and prevent any damage to vehicles. If inclement weather takes place preventing joint and crack sealing, residents will receive another notice with the rescheduled work date.
