2022 Seal Coat and Fog Seal

Boone Detour Figure


At the May 23 council meeting, contracts were awarded to Allied Blacktop Company and Fahrner Asphalt Sealers for the 2022 Crack Repair & Seal Coat Project. Fahrner Asphalt Sealers will be completing the mastic repair work and Allied Blacktop Company will be completing the crack repair, seal coat and fog seal work. 

The project area map can be seen below. Streets in BLUE will have mastic repairs, streets in GREEN will have crack repairs and mastic repairs, streets in YELLOW will have mastic repairs, seal coat and fog seal, streets in PURPLE will have crack repairs only, streets in RED will have crack repair, seal coat and fog seal, and streets in ORANGE will be fog sealed.

The crack repair, seal coat and fog seal process first involves the sawing and filling of any cracks in the road. Then, after a few weeks, the contractor will return and spray a tack coat onto the roadway and will cover it with a chip rock product. This product must sit for at least 10 days, and then the contractor will return to install the fog seal product, which seals up the roadway and provides a hard, asphalt surface. An example of the finished product can be seen in the image below.

"No parking" signs will be installed on project streets the night before as an indicator that seal coat work will begin the next day. Cars that are still parked on the street when seal coat operations begin will be towed at the owner's expense. In general, roads will remain open for traffic and for residents to access driveways during the seal coat process.

Any questions can be addressed to the city's project coordinator, Nick Macklem, at
