Transportation and Public Works department to perform microsurfacing on several City streets

From the City of Weatherford

The City of Weatherford Transportation and Public Works Department will have Intermountain Slurry, Inc., a pavement contractor, perform microsurfacing on several streets April 21 and April 23, weather permitting.

Microsurfacing, also similar to a slurry seal, consists of the application of thin asphalt emulsion (liquid asphalt) with fine aggregate on existing asphalt roadway surfaces. Microsurfacing is a pavement preservation treatment that helps extend pavement life by keeping good streets in good condition. The treatment seals cracks on existing roads and protects the roadway surface from occurrences that cause normal wear and tear, thus slowing down the deterioration rate of pavement.

“We aim to complete this project with as little disturbance to traffic flow as possible,” said director of public works Manny Palacios. “The preservation will help ensure that our City roadways remain in good condition for many years to come.”

The application process is placed rapidly and traffic is normally able to drive on the pavement within a couple of hours. Treated roads will be closed to through traffic. Residents within the project area will have access to their property with occasional small periods of inaccessibility during the paving operation. The public is encouraged to not park vehicles on the street and/or edge of pavement within the project area, during the process.

Please contact the Transportation and Public Works Department at (817)598-4245 for any questions or for more information.
