Treatment of City streets is now set to begin.

The City of Battle Creek says that on Tuesday night, the 2017 Street treatment program was approved, with work beginning now and running til November, weather permitting. Chip sealing, Crack filing and Microsurfacing will be taking place.

Chip Sealing is a method involving the application of small chips in liquid asphalt, covered by a layer of asphalt called a fog seal. this can extend pavement life by five to six years.

Crack Filling aims to prevent the widening of cracks by filling them with a cold liquid asphalt.

Microsurfacing usually lasts around five to eight years, and involves the adding of a layer of a mixture of rock, asphalt, water and other additives.

 

Streets that will be seeing work include Capital Ave, McCamly St and Jackson St W; the complete list is below.
