Asphalt Crack Filling and Fog Sealing Taking Place
October 2nd – October 20th
Crack filling is a process of mechanically routing (grinding) out cracks in the asphalt surface, using compressed air to blow out the routed crack, then filling the space with a rubberized material. The crack fill material is more flexible than asphalt and will expand and contract with weather changes. Crack filling is an important road maintenance tool which helps prevent water from entering beneath the asphalt and causing damage.
The most important thing to understand about the crack filling process is that ROUTING WORK IS EXTREMELY DUSTY, especially when they are blowing out the routed crack. The Village recommends that you keep home and car windows closed while this work is taking place. The Village also asks that you not to park on the street during crack fill work.
Fog sealing is the application of an asphalt sealer onto asphalt surfaces to protect them from sun and weather. This work takes place on recreational paths and Village-owned parking lots.
Attached is the list of streets which are planned to receive crack fill work during the time noted above. Because this work is contracted by the pound, it is unknown exactly how many roads will be treated, but it should be most if not all of those listed. The specific day your street will be treated is not available. Fog seal locations are also on the list.
Working hours are weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday thru Friday. The Village would appreciate your patience if crack filling work takes place in your area. Please contact Don Kinzler, P.E., Engineering Project Manager with further questions at 815-
