The crack-sealing program is part of the county’s comprehensive road maintenance program to increase the longevity of the roads by sealing road cracks preventing water from penetrating the road base and reducing the life of the pavement.

The above-mentioned roads will remain open during treatment, but will be reduced to one lane of travel using temporary daily lane closures.
