2021 Hard Top Resurfacing

Slurry Seal

Slurry seal is a surface treatment designed to extend the life of asphalt pavements in good condition by providing skid resistance, restricting moisture intrusion, protecting the structure from further oxidation and raveling, and restoring a uniform black appearance. Slurry seal boasts quick construction times and reasonable disruption to the traveling public.

The following roads will receive a slurry seal in 2021: 

Rice Road Clear Lake Road
Brady Lake Road Tom Bolton Road
Prentiskoka Heights Road Lochlin Road
∑= $275,950
Cold Constructed Asphalt Pavement (CCAP)

Not to be confused with cold mix (used to patch potholes) CCAP is a flexible, self-healing, high performing asphalt laid at a minimum of 50mm (2”) thick.

The following roads will receive a CCAP overlay in 2021:

Howland Junction Road Green Gables Road
∑= $173,890
Double Surface Treatment

In 2021 roads receiving a double surface treatment will be pulverized, re-shaped, 100mm (4” of Granular ‘A’) applied, a double surface treatment (tar and chip) with a fog seal immediately following.

The fog seal, helps seal off any surface voids and raveling commonly found with surface treatment, preserving and extending the life of the surface.
