The work was scheduled for a Sunday to minimize the impact to traffic. Drivers should use caution when traveling near the work zones and be alert to workers in the area and traffic control measures. Loose gravel may be present for several days following a seal coat application. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes if possible.
Seal coating helps with pothole prevention and improves skid resistance, extending the life of the road. The treatment penetrates cracks and imperfections in the roadway surface to seal water out, which can break down the road structure over time and lead to more costly and time-consuming repairs.
The work will be completed by contractor Brannan Paving Co., Ltd., of Victoria.
