Completed Projects 2015

2015 Pavement Preservation (Chip Seal) Project

Description: The City uses a Least Cost Strategy to repair pavement. Pavements are repaired when they are in relatively good condition. We do this so they don’t decline to a poor condition and require major repairs. Chip seals are one of the treatments we use to preserve pavements.

In 2015, the following streets received a chip seal treatment:

  • West Bay Drive – Garfield Avenue to Schneider Hill Road
  • Schneider Hill Road – West Bay Drive to Raft Avenue

  • Road 65 – 14th Avenue to Elliott Avenue

  • Elliott Avenue – 935 feet west of Cooper Point Road to Cooper Point Road

  • Mottman Road – West City Limits to east City Limits

  • Black Lake Boulevard – South City Limits to US 101 Ramps

  • Black Lake Boulevard – 9th Avenue to 4th Avenue

  • Division Street – 4th Avenue to Harrison Avenue

Goal: Preserve pavement surface.
