Cracksealing is technically a maintenance activity rather than a capital improvement project. However, since it occurs on the streets, it is being included in this section.
Cracksealing is part of an overall pavement maintenance plan, preventing water and debris from getting into the joints and causing deterioration.
The 2019 project will consist of streets generally west of Ballas Road, equating to about half the city's streets. The streets generally east of Ballas Road will be completed in even years.
Project Update and Schedule
Bids were opened 1/25/19, with Sweetens Concrete Services as the low bidder. Work is currently underway, but progress has been slow due to the wet spring. After each rain, the cracks and joints in the pavement "weep" for a day or two, which prevents cracksealing.
