Major street projects such as reconstruction and resurfacing are the responsibility of City Engineering.
The Streets Division conducts an annual chip seal program on unimproved streets. Unimproved streets are streets without curb and gutter.
Chip sealing involves applying a layer of oil to the street and covering it with surfacing material, generally a layer of small stones. After the oil has cured (approximately five to ten days) excess material will be swept by a mechanical street sweeper.
Additional chip sealing operations are performed by City Engineering. For more information - and the complete list of streets receiving this treatment - vist their website.
There is no charge to property owners for chip sealing.
