You may have noticed a lot of work being done on our nice smooth roads. This is road maintenance that will extend the life of our roads. When cracks form in the road water can get under the surface and start to heave or break apart the road. The first step is to seal those cracks, you may have seen those black streaks on the road where they've done the crack sealing. The next step is the chip seal and fog seal. This isn't the nasty drawn out process of the past. A coating is put down, the chips are put down they're rolled in, the excess is swept off and a fog seal is applied over a fairly short time period and the roads are in good condition again. Thank you for your patience while we go through this process.
