The Montgomery County Highway Department will begin seal coating operations for certain roads on September 14.
Crews will start on County Road 625 South on or around Tuesday, September 14th, depending upon weather conditions,
Multiple locations are scheduled for seal coating operation and the seal coating project is scheduled to last 4-5 weeks. Weather may extend the project length.
Seal coating will be performed under full road closure. This method greatly reduces risk of property damage, allows the work to be performed more efficiently, increases safety for crews on sight, and allows for a better-quality finished product.
During seal coating, workers will set small stones in an asphalt emulsion, or a bonding agent, which is, then cure for a few days.
The next step is to fog seal the road by applying a light layer of asphalt that seals the stones. After seal coat operations are complete, any loose aggregate will be swept away from the road. Seal Coating, on average, extends the life of pavement by three to five years.
Roads are chosen for this process based on surface type, condition and age. Motorists should remember to slow down, increase following distance, obey all work zone signs, and plan for extra time to get to your destination.
