2020 Crack Sealing Program

2020 Crack Sealing Program

Project:

2020 Crack Sealing Project

Town Contacts:

Stephane Cherduville, EIT, Public Works Engineer, Concord Public Works (CPW)– Engineering Division, 978-318-3210, scherduville@concordma.gov

General Contractor:

Indus Inc, Braintree, MA

Project Background:

The goal of the Town’s annual crack sealing program is to extend the life span of the existing roadway. Cracks naturally develop in asphalt due to oxidation and pavement deterioration.  Crack sealing is important for a successful maintenance by preventing water from penetrating into the sub-base, which is a major cause of pavement failure. 

Project Schedule:

The work will commence in July 2020, and more work may be done in fall of 2020 if funding becomes available. 

Project Overview:

CPW has identified areas in town (click here for map) which will benefit from an application of crack sealing. The locations in the table below have been identified for the treatment:

Scope of Work:

First all cracks will be cleaned to remove vegetation and other impediments to crack sealing. Cracks are then sealed using hot-applied rubberized joint sealant, and a light aggregate material is then applied to the hot rubber to improve adhesion to the pavement surface.
