Pavement Management Plan

Paving Protocol


A tar-like emulsion is applied on the old surface to enhance contact with the new asphalt. A bottom or leveling course of asphalt is placed by machine curb to curb along the entire roadway. This course reshapes the road reestablishing the crown (the high point almost always in the center) and fills depressions and wheel ruts which have worn and settled over time.

A second crew will then raise the castings (steel catch basin grates and manhole covers) to the anticipated finish elevation. Care should be taken while driving since they will be an inch and a half to two inches above the road surface.

At a later date (Please be patient since scheduling becomes difficult as the summer progresses due to a short construction season) another paving crew will apply the top coat throughout the entire project. At this point in the process, you may notice a substantial difference in height between your old driveway and the new roadway surface. A gap may also be evident along certain areas of your frontage and around some mailboxes. We anticipate and prepare for this.

Final Adjustments

A “finish” crew from the paving company will address each driveway and install by hand an “apron” which will blend the driveway to the new street height.

As always, your patience is very much appreciated.
