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 take place in 14 different areas.

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)

Purpose:

The annual seal coat project extends the pavement life of our City streets and helps prevent future wear from weather and traffic. This preventative maintenance ultimately saves the City and its residents money, time and resources in the future.
