I'm amazed that we're actually going to see some projects like this to enhance road quality. Good to see this, hopefully it'll continue. Is this the magic of our new mayor?

It looks similar to the asphalt sealcoating you see done in parking lots, but with some sand/aggregate mixed in with the emulsion.

Chip seals usually use hot oil followed by the spreading of the fine rock. The water emulsion is the reason they are emphasizing waiting for it to cure. It won't be ready to use fast like hot oil is.

Otherwise it will be like fixing an old car then selling it for scrap?

Every time the city did our street here in arbor heights we had goo on the car and rock damage. Figure we are the step child of the city to get a road in the boondocks. Read the article and seems better but real pavement like rest of the city would be nice. Just saying. R Anything has to be better than chip surfacing.

It's nice to see that we're starting to get more attention down in the deep southwestern wilderness. More to come, I wager.
