NEIGHBORHOOD NOTIFIER

Neighborhood Notifier

If you receive a "STREET SEALCOATING NOTICE - CLOSURE," this is what you can expect:

  1. Workers arrive and do final cleaning on your street with brooms and blowers.
  2. A large orange paving machine and trucks arrive on the street and begin paving. If you plan to use your vehicle in the next few hours, by now it should be parked on a nearby street not scheduled for micro-surfacing.
  3. All lanes of the street are paved, the equipment leaves, and the street is closed with orange traffic cones, barrels or barricades. The fresh asphalt is still wet and should not be driven on for at least one hour.

MICRO IS STICKY WHEN WET

  1. Many projects call for a double application. Usually, the work crew will return later that day to apply the top coat so the streets are closed for only one day.
  2. When the asphalt is dry and cured, the traffic cones will be removed and the street opened. The new asphalt will be "tender" for a few days, so "take it easy."

CURED MICRO IS NOT STICKY

WHEN CONES ARE GONE,
MICRO IS CURED

Thanks for your cooperation! If an emergency arises and you need to drive on a street before it is opened, please contact one of our workers or your city. We can help you get where you need to go with less damage to the micro-surfacing and less asphalt on your car.

We will also do our best to work with special problems like moving vans, yard sales, and the like. If you have errands to run, check with our work crew or your city to find out if your street will be micro-surfaced in the morning or afternoon.

Contact us before you drive on fresh asphalt.
OUR GOAL IS TO MINIMIZE INCONVENIENCE!
