Crack sealing will occur in July-work to start week of July 9,
Micro surfacing in August (start date to be determined).

ROUT & SEAL (Crack sealing)
Rout and seal is used on transverse (crosswise) and longitudinal cracks, involves using a
pavement saw or router to create a reservoir centered over existing cracks, then filling with a sealant.

Micro surfacing involves placing a slurry—which is a mixture of aggregate, asphalt emulsion, and a mineral filler such as Portland cement—into a wide crack and striking it off with a squeegee. Slurry-filling cracks is good for roadways with severe transverse cracks and/or depressed transverse cracks. A 3-foot-wide squeegee, with sideboards, is typically used to feather the material into the depressed areas.

These are the streets in Buffalo Ridge that will be in the work area:

Regal Ave 310th St 308th St
308th St Regal Ave Redwing Ave
Regal Ave 308th St 305th Ln
305th Ln Redding Ave Regal Ave
Redding Ave Reflection Ave 305th Ln
