- County Road 22 (from civic address 544 to Kinglsey Road)
- County Road 33 (from Hillier to Rosehall)
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 that is coarser texture for enhanced skid resistance and reinstates a safe wearing surface.
A specialized machine mixes materials (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.
