Crack Sealing/Pavement Preservation

WEATHER PERMITTING, Sealcoating, Inc. will be in town starting Monday, the 11th to treat roads that are cracked and in need of a minimal preservation treatment. This project will take approximately two weeks, providing the weather cooperates. 

Crack sealing is a proactive measure that greatly reduces potholes and other future problems and is a critical line of defense against water infiltration. It lowers the overall cost of pavement preservation over time and extends the road life by 2 to 5 years. 

The Department of Public Works is utilizing pavement data from the Pavement Management Study completed by BETA Group to identify those roads that can best benefit from this treatment. Those roads selected are in the following sections/neighborhoods: West Passage, Pettaquamscutt Lake Shores, Edgewater, Great Island. Not all roads in the neighborhoods will receive the treatment, just those identified. Clarke Rd, Glendaway Dr and Martin Rd will also be crack sealed.


Weather permitting, on Thursday, August 24th, Safe Sidewalks/Precision Concrete Cutting will begin repair work on selected areas of sidewalks on the following roads: Caswell St., Beach St., Matthewson St, & Ocean Road.

Precision Concrete Cutting reach the edges of every sidewalk, we can remove trip hazards from virtually any angle and at any location. Trip hazards caused by cracked concrete or located in hard-to-reach places such as in gutters or adjacent to a wall will be eliminated without any damage to nearby objects.

Our method takes very little time, with minimal disruptions to pedestrians using the sidewalk. The result is a safe, clean-cut walking path provided at a greater value than any other method.
