Fog Sealing is the application of a thin layer of asphalt emulsion that helps cover small roadway imperfections, cracks or other small voids and seals the existing asphalt to preserve and protect the roadway. During this work, travel lane restrictions will be in place, however at least one lane of travel will be maintained in both directions.
Business and residential access will be maintained at all times during the project. The traveling public can expect delays when driving in the work area. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work area.
The Road Recovery Program is funded by voter-approved bonds. All proceeds from the bonds will be used to restore and resurface City streets through Fiscal Year 2018. A Bond Oversight Commission composed of citizen volunteers is working to ensure that all bond funds are expended solely for the purpose of repairing city streets.
