CRACK SEALING OF ROADS IN PREPARATION FOR ASPHALT MAINTENANCE

Durham, Calif.-- Butte County Public Works will be taking advantage of the dry weather to perform crack sealing and other pavement maintenance work in the Durham area.  Workers will be placing a hot-melt rubberized crack sealant into the cracks in the asphalt, in preparation for asphalt sealing work to be performed later this summer.  The goal with these treatments is to keep the water out of the roadway envelope, which will help prevent the deterioration of the roadway surface and the formation of potholes.
Work will begin in the Peterson Ranch Subdivision.  Roads to be treated include Peterson Estates Drive, La Rose Court, Bremner Court., Tracy Ranch Road, Sarah Ann Court and Metzger Court.  Weather permitting, work will be performed from February 13, 2020 to February 28, 2020.
Residents that live near and travel on these roads should expect minor delays.  Work schedules will vary based on crew availability, but will generally start at 7:00 a.m. with work completed and roads opened back up to traffic by 3:00 p.m.
During work hours, all roads will be restricted to a single lane of traffic, with flaggers stopping and directing traffic through the work zone.
The Butte County Public Works Department has been serving its residents since 1850, providing cost effective roadway maintenance services.  The Department maintains approximately 1,300 miles of roadways, over 500 bridges and drainage structures and more than 18,000 road signs.
