Streets in the above subdivisions will receive two different types of resurfacing products. The straight sections of road will receive what is called a "seal coat" and the cul-de-sacs will receive what is called a "fog seal".
A seal coat is a preventive maintenance surface treatment designed to preserve and extend the life of a street. It protects an aging pavement surface and seals up small cracks to keep water out of the pavement. The process starts by spraying a thin layer of liquid asphalt over the pavement. It is followed by the spreading of a thin layer of small rock. The surface is then rolled with a rubber tire roller and the street is reopened to traffic. Excess gravel is swept up by a vacuum street sweeper soon thereafter. It takes about a couple of months for the new surface to completely cure and lock the surface firmly into place with the road open to regular traffic.
