Contractors retained by The County will be undertaking a micro surfacing application on various roads starting Wednesday, May 25 as part of the rural road rehabilitation program.
The following roads will be affected:
- County Road 8 (from Picton Town Limit to County Road 17)
- County Road 1 (from Matthie Road to Highway 62)
- County Road 1 (from County Road 2 to Chase Road)
- Loyalist Parkway/County Road 33 (from Hillier East to Civic Address 19140)
Micro surfacing is a road rehabilitation technique that extends the life expectancy of the roadway by sealing the road surface to prevent water from infiltrating the road base. The technique also creates a road surface with a coarser texture for enhanced skid resistance and reinstates a safe wearing surface.
A specialized machine mixes material (emulsified asphalt, aggregate, filler, water and additives) that are then spread over the existing road surface. After a short curing period, traffic is provided access to the new surface.
