Seal Coat Project: 2017


Zone: North, SouthWhat zone am I?

Current Project

Project Start: May 2017

Estimated Completion: Fall 2017

Project Overview:

This project is part of the city’s annual infrastructure improvement efforts and impacts multiple areas of Fargo each construction season. Seal coat projects extend the life of asphalt pavement and provide a more traffic and weather resistant surface. It involves spraying an asphalt emulsion on the pavement surface, immediately followed by a rock chip application that is embedded into the emulsion. The project will be take place in 13 different areas.

Impacts:

Traffic will be maintained during construction, but some lanes may be closed at times or parking temporarily reduced for work being done. This work will be performed on streets and avenues in these areas of the city:

Timeline:

Construction will begin in late April/early May and continue throughout the season, when contractors can fit work into their schedules with other projects. All seal coat improvements should be complete by fall.

Purpose:

Installation of a seal coat at this time will extend the life of these roadways considerably.

Funding:

This project is estimated to cost $1 million. It will be paid by street rehabilitation funds and special assessments. Property owners is sections 10 and 13 above should receive special assessments.

A typical road will experience three seal coat applications throughout its lifespan, applied approximately every eight years to asphalt pavement. The first seal coat application is funded through 100% special assessments while the remaining projects are 100% city funded.

Here is the typical timeline for this preventive maintenance:

  • Road built/reconstructed – Wear Course (top layer of the asphalt)
  • Year 2 – Seal Coat (100% assessed) applied
  • Year 10 – Seal Coat (100% city funded) applied
  • Year 18 – Seal Coat (100% city funded) or Mill & Overlay depending on roadway conditions
  • Year 25 – Mill & Overlay (50% assessed/50% city funded)
