News Details

Cape Seal surface improvement projects wrap up Sept. 26

During this construction, there will be flagmen and other workers directing traffic to ensure the safe passage of all citizens and for the safety of our workers.  Expect some delays, and choose alternate routes, if possible.  Hours of construction  is 7 am to 5 pm. 

Cape Seal is the combination of two pavement surface treatments used on streets and highways to extend pavement life upwards of 10 years. The project contractor is Valley Slurry Seal (VSS) International and project manager is Public Works Manager Norm Goldstrom. 

Streets will not be closed to traffic during the Chip Seal process, but delays are to be expected.  Streets that are to receive treatment will have "No Parking" signs placed along the street 24 hours prior to the work being started. In order to sweep excess loose chips after placement, cars will still need to be parked off the street or in some other convenient area for the two days following the placement of the chip seal.

PLEASE DO NOT WASH CARS, OR WATER LAWNS THE DAY BEFORE OR THE DAY THE WORK IS SCHEDULED. ANY CARS PARKED WITHIN THE POSTED AREA ON THE DAYS OF THE CHIP SEAL PLACEMENT WILL BE TOWED.  FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY, PLEASE KEEP CHILDREN AND ANIMALS AWAY FROM THE AREA WHILE CONSTRUCTION IS IN PROGRESS.  IF THE DAY SCHEDULED IS YOUR NORMAL TRASH / SANITATION DAY, PLEASE NOTE THAT TRASH PICKUP WILL NOT BE IMPACTED.

Residents in impacted areas will be notified of the work start date no less than 72 hours prior to the work beginning. Public notifications include message boards, door hangers and no parking signs will go up 24 hours in advance of the work.
