STREET MAINTENANCE | MILL AND OVERLAY | RESIDENTIAL | CRACK SEAL
The Crack and Seal Program is a street maintenance program to prevent the cracks from becoming any larger, and to hold the road together until a more extensive street maintenance treatment is scheduled.
“Although the crack seal treatment is not very attractive and leaves the road looking as if it has black webs everywhere, this is simply a temporary fix and their street will be repaired within 6-12 months. We just don’t want additional weathering in these cracks to penetrate into the road’s foundation,” said Project Manager Angela Garcia.
With this minor fix, the roads can last long enough to withstand additional wear and tear, without causing harm to vehicles or pedestrians who drive/walk over them.
“When residents called in to express their relief that street maintenance was finally occurring on their street. They were made even happier when they were informed that mill and overlay work would follow in a few months,” said Project Manager Angela Garcia.
Thankfully, this is a minimally invasive project and crews are performing the work that needs to be done very quickly to be in and out of a neighborhood within days.

“Some residents drove over the crack fill material, which seemingly caused tire damage, as the tires were caked with material, but we informed them that if they would drive at 40+ mph, the sealant would flake off and the tires would be fine. The cases that were more serious ended up receiving assistance from Sunland Asphalt. We worked as a team to ensure the resident’s issues were resolved.”
