With the city short on funds for inspecting work performed the citizens need to lend a hand and make sure money is well spent an the job done job correctly.
This city is about to embark on an almost half a million dollar ($481,598.05) project to slurry seal, crack seal, base repair and applying a leveling course were necessary on 63 streets totaling about 10 miles of roadway in one of the older neighborhoods of tract homes commonly referred to as Windsong Valley.
See Map below
Several areas need to be watched carefully.
1. Cleaning of the roadway, Dirt reduces the bond between the sealcoat and the pavement. The sealer will adhere to the dirt…but the dirt won’t adhere to the pavement.
2. Cracks need to be cleaned completely and routed properly. See photo of cities instructions to the contractor regarding the routing and filling of cracks.
(A Quick reference for width and depth is a penny which is 3/4 inches in diameter, routed cracks should accept a penny.)
3. All cracks routed or not should be blown out with hot air to remove all loose dirt debris and grass.
