Sealcoating is the process of compacting small aggregate materials into a heated oil layer placed over an existing asphalt roadway. This provides a cost-effective way to extend the life of the asphalt, enhances skid resistance, and establishes a new moisture barrier for the underlying pavement against water intrusion. This work will be completed by Fuquay, Inc. and is part of the 2016 Street Maintenance plan. Portions of the following city streets will be closed to accommodate the sealcoat process:
- Old Reliance Road
- Area 1: Richard Street, Alice Street, Leonard Drive, and Leonard Road/Groesbeck Street
- Area 2: Cottonwood Street, Bamboo Street, Pecan Street, Hazel Street, Hickory Street, Birch Street, Cedar Street, Anita Street, Rosedale Street, Mockingbird Road, Richard Street, and Rosedale Street
- Area 3: Louis Street, Robeson Street, Rochester Street, Tatum Street, Carver Street, Dixie Street, West 28th Street, and Quality Park Lane
- Area 4: Hicks Lane and Hardy Weedon Road
- Area 5: Trant Street, Sunset Street, Briar Lane, Mockingbird Road, Lock Lane, Bryant Street, and Roberts Street
- Area 6: Turkey Creek Road, Stuart Street, Cindy Lane, Sandy Lane, and Union Street
