KDOT: County Applies Crack Sealing To Tyrell Road in Gilberts, Starting June 11
Kane County will begin the final portion of the pavement preservation project by applying crack seal and a micro-surface treatment to a portion of Tyrell Road in Gilberts, starting Tuesday, June 11, 2019.
Construction work hours will be from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day for about two weeks.
Cracks will be sealed, followed by a dual layer of micro-surface hot-mix asphalt on top.
Pavement preservation techniques are lower-cost maintenance improvements that reduce the water penetration that leads to freeze/thaw damage. The process prevents oxidation of the asphalt material and extends the overall lifespan of the roadways.
Tyrell Road will remain open during treatment but will be reduced to one lane of travel using flaggers and temporary daily lane closures.
Questions and concerns may be directed to Patrick VerHalen at 630-208-3138.
