DPW Roadway Surface Treatment 2016
 The DPW is about to start the 2016 roadway surface treatment program.

Surface treatments are maintenance procedures done to streets that are in fair condition.  It is a low cost treatment that extends the life of a roadway that is in pretty good shape.  Properly timed surface treatments will keep roads in fair to good shape and prevents detonation that leads to a need for very costly reconstruction.  

Applying surface treatments are not unlike painting your house.  Paint is a relatively low cost maintenance measure that prevents wood rot that is very costly to fix.  Also, similar to painting, surface treatments are designed to create a seal that keeps the water out.

Unfortunately, our inventory of streets that are good candidates for surface treatment is not very large, but we are working towards expanding the list of streets that can benefit from an every five to seven year surface treatment.

Below is the list of streets on which we plan to do Surface Treatments on this year.
