  • Pavement Preservation encompasses two different treatment types in 2022
    • Micro-Surfacing
    • Mill and Overlay
  • Micro-Surfacing
    Micro-Surfacing is the application of special coating to the top layer of asphalt that prevents oxidization and moisture penetration. The components of the mixture are mixed on site and spread onto the road surface.
  • Mill and Overlay
    Mill and Overlay is a multi stage process which involves removing a specified thickness of asphalt using a milling machine, and then paving over top of the milled surface.
  • The project includes:
    • Township Road 570 from Range Road 215 – 224 — Micro-Surfacing
    • Opal Road from Township Road 574 – 580 — Micro-Surfacing
