Summer 2018 Cape Seal Program
The Department of Public Services maintains nearly 26 miles of unimproved roadways through cape seal surface treatment. The next round of seal application is scheduled for Summer 2018. Streets tentatively identified for the project include:

CHESTERFIELD | Maple to Quarton 
FAIRFAX | Maple to Raynale
SUFFIELD | Maple to Quarton
PILGRIM | Maple to Quarton 
PURITAN | Pine to Redding
LAKE PARK | Maple to Redding
PINE | Chesterfield to Lakepark
RAYNALE | Chesterfield to Lakeside
REDDING | Chesterfield to Lakepark

The treatment will include a double layer of chip seal and a slurry microsurface, with some streets requiring surface pulverization prior application. Sidewalk crossing ramps in project areas will be upgraded to meet ADA requirements, where applicable.
