Single surface treatment is a preventative maintenance tool that preserves and reinforces existing surface treated roads to extend their life expectancy.
It is constructed by spraying a uniform application of asphalt emulsion – which is a liquid asphalt cement emulsified in water – followed by a layer of cover aggregate.
Roads may appear to be granular while setting, but will continue to harden before taking on the final look of surface treatment. Warm weather and traffic will assist with setting the cover aggregate into the asphalt emulsion. Visit the County website to learn more about road rehabilitation and preventative maintenance.
