Street Program

Mission is currently developing a multi-year maintenance program for the road network. The plan will be based on road conditions and available resources. Regular street maintenance improves the quality of the roads and extends the life cycle of those streets, protecting past investments.

The Street Maintenance Program’s main components are:

  • Spot repair, curbs, sidewalk, medians, etc.
  • Chip sealing or a UBAS treatment
  • Mill and Overlay
  • Full depth replacement

The life cycle of a street is shown on this diagram.

Chip Sealing

Chip sealing is a street maintenance process that applies a thin layer of crushed rock onto a layer of asphalt. Motorists are able to drive on the treated surface immediately following the process. Please use caution when driving near the chip sealing equipment.

Ultrathin Bonded Asphalt Surface (UBAS) 

UBAS treatment applies a thin coating over existing pavement to prevent water from causing further damage to the road surface.

Mill and Overlay 

Mill and Overlay is done when a road’s condition has deteriorated past a point at which seal treatment would be effective, but before a full depth replacement is required. In mill and overlay, the asphalt is milled down two inches and replaced with a new layer of asphalt.

The mill and overlay process can be completed fairly quickly. Motorists are able to still drive on the milled surface but must stay off the new asphalt surface until it cools. Curb and driveway approaches will be replaced with concrete (as shown in the photo). These sections will take three to four days to cure before they are safe for driving again. Please obey all signage and do not drive past barricades.
