The Public Works Department will conduct crack sealing maintenance on streets for the next few weeks, weather permitting.
Crack sealing is a maintenance method used to extend the useful life of a road surface. Cedar Hills uses a hot method to seal road cracks. The cracks are cleaned out with compressed air, and a hot fluid material is injected into the cracks, which are then leveled with an attachment on the injection wand. The optimal time to apply the material is when air temperatures are between 30 to 40 degrees and after the roads have contracted due to cold temperatures.
