2018 Cape Seal Project

UPDATE: August 17, 2018
Slurry coat application is expected to begin during the week of August 27. The contractor will post parking/traffic restrictions 1-2 days in advance of beginning any street segment, and will provide additional instructions on door hangers. 

This final stage involves restricting streets to one-way traffic during the application and subsequent curing of the slurry product. 


Thank you for your patience during this process.
