Micro-Surface Sealing
Information Brochure (Lists streets included in the project.)

The Micro-Surface seal program is designed to improve the quality of your street and to prolong the life of the street. Micro-Surface sealing is a cost effective, preventative maintenance method that will help avoid costly street reconstruction in the future.

Micro-Surface sealing is a process that is wet when applied, and will need at least 8 hours of drying time (curing) before it can receive any type of traffic. Driving or walking on the Micro surface seal before it has cured will damage the street, stick to your shoes, track into your home or business, splatter onto your vehicle, and track onto sidewalks and driveways.

Chip Sealing

The chip sealing program is designed to improve the quality of your street and to delay the need of resurfacing or total reconstruction. Chip sealing is a cost effective preventative maintenance method, used to extend the useful life of Eau Claire streets. It is intended for application on streets that are still in good condition, structurally sound, and in need of little repair.

Chip sealing is a process that involves applying emulsion oil and chips (3/8" fractured washed granite) to the streets surface. The chips are compacted into the emulsion oil and left to cure for approximately 24 hours.
 
Crack Sealing

Crack sealing is an annual program that we use to extend the useful life of the street.  Streets that are 2 to 10 years old or are included as part of the annual chip seal program are evaluated and crack-sealed each year.

The process involves widening the cracks out, blowing the cracks clean, pouring liquid asphalt into them, and then placing a biodegradable paper product over the asphalt to allow for vehicle traffic.

Approximately 113 miles of cracks are sealed annually, using 60 tons of liquid asphalt.
