A final finish coat of slurry seal or a fog seal will be applied beginning the week of Monday, August 16. The affected streets will have to be temporarily closed while the seal is applied, and a four-hour set time will be needed until the roadways will be able to accept traffic.

The maintenance application is low-cost treatment to preserve and extend the life of the city’s roadways.

The total project cost is $619,583.  Some $611,000 comes from city capital funds with the balance coming from the Municipal Liquid Fuels Program.
