Pavement Maintenance Types
Mill and Overlay- When the stabilization layer of a street is still functional, but the driving surface is below standards, crews will mill off some or all of the driving surface of a street and replace the removed portion with a new driving surface. Mill and overlays usually take between a few weeks to a couple months to complete, and extend the life of a street. (Click here to view map)
Microsurfacing- Microsurfacing is a type of preventative maintenance that involves applying a protective coating to the surface of a street that is still in good condition. Similar to changing oil in a car, this is a cost effective way to prolong the life of a street and enhance the surface for improved drivability before wear and tear damages the street’s surface. This minor rehab work is typically completed within a day and extends the life of a road.
Concrete Panel Repair- Streets that are made out of concrete are able to have the failed sections of concrete pavement removed and a new concrete surface installed without having to replace the entire street.
Base Failures- When the stabilization layer of a street fails in certain areas due to shifting soils or other reasons, that specific area can be targeted and rebuilt to restore the street to standards.
Crack Seal- This involves sealing the gap between two sides of a crack in a street’s surface. This repair is done in less than a day, and restores the smoothness to a street.
