The annual sealing of streets throughout the City of Woodland is the most cost­-effective type of preventive maintenance. The street maintenance program is designed in such a way that residential/local streets receive a seal treatment (surfacing) on a routine basis. By sealing the street before it needs major repair and reconstruction, the City is able to prolong the life of a streets surface. The cost to slurry seal a street is about 10% of the cost of an asphalt concrete overlay for the same street.

The City will be doing different types of seals dependent on the condition of the street. The following is a summary of the work types and what to expect when your road is scheduled:

1. Type II Slurry Seal – 1 day process
The slurry seal is composed of asphaltic emulsion (oil and water), latex additive, and coarse sand. The mixture is applied on top of the existing pavement surface at an average thickness of 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Once applied, the composition takes about two to four hours to cure in warm weather. The slurry mixture seals the pavement from water intrusion, which can cause deterioration of the street. The slurry seal, when cured, provides better traction and an improved wearing surface for automotive traffic. Initially, the final product may have a rough finish but becomes smoother over a short period of time.

2. Type II Microsurfacing – 1 day process
Microsurfacing is a one day treatment, unless rut filling is required. It is similar in application and cure-time to a slurry seal and will also require road closures and parking restrictions. Microsurfacing cures into a hard surface and as a result, is less susceptible to power steering tire scuffs. It is also good for use in areas with higher traffic volumes.

3. Type II Scrub Cape Seal or Microsurfacing - 2 day process
The Scrub Cape Seal is composed of a chip seal covered by a Type II Slurry or Microsurfacing. On the first day, oil and chip will be spread on your street. The chip will be allowed to remain for a few days to work into the street before being swept and the Type II Slurry or Microsurfacing applied. It could be as long as three to four weeks between these two processes, however the chips will be swept within seven days of chip placement.

4. Micro Double Chip Scrub Cape Seal – 2 day process
The Micro-Double Chip Seal is the same process as the Type II Scrub Cape Seal, with an additional layer of chip placed prior to the Microsurfacing.

5. Type II Scrub with Fabric or Microsurfacing– 2 day process
This is the same process described in the Scrub Cape Seal, but adds a layer of pavement fabric below the chips for additional strength.

To avoid causing damage to your vehicle(s), please drive very slowly until the chips have been swept.


Bond Blacktop, Inc. of Union City, California was awarded the contract to perform the work. The project is scheduled to begin in Mid June and is expected to be complete by mid July. A door hanger will be placed on front doors 48 hours (2 working days) in advance, indicating the day the street will be affected. Streets or portions of affected streets will be closed from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on the day the street is scheduled to be sealed. During this time, streets are swept, utility covers are protected, and treatments are applied and allowed to cure. The majority of the work for each day will be completed by 2:00 p.m. in order to allow the streets to dry (cure) and be opened for vehicle traffic by 5:00 p.m. Multiple streets or street sections will be sealed each day. It is difficult to estimate which part of the day each street will be sealed due to the nature of the seal process and the daily construction variations that arise.

Roadside parking will not be permitted on the street between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and no vehicle traffic will be allowed on the street between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the day the street is to be slurried. You will be permitted to enter/leave the street until the street is closed. All streets will be available to the public before and after these hours. Pedestrian access to residences and businesses will be allowed at all times. If you need to leave or return to your residence during the hours of street closure, or normally park your vehicle(s) on the street, please park your car in an area not scheduled to be slurry sealed that day. Barricades with signs indicating which areas will be sealed and the hours streets will be closed will be placed 48 hours (two days) in advance.

Please note that Police and Fire vehicles will have access to all streets should there be an emergency situation.

Garbage Pick-Up: If the day your street is scheduled to be slurry sealed is the same day as your garbage pick-up, put your trash receptacles out prior to 6:00 a.m. Waste Management has been given a copy of the schedule and will rearrange normal pick-up schedules so trash receptacles on streets to be slurry sealed will be picked-up prior to 7:00 a.m.

Green Waste Pick-Up:Every attempt will be made to seal streets after green waste pick-up days. If your street is scheduled for sealing before your green waste pick-up day, please do not place green waste in the street prior to the day of seal work.

Watering:Please minimize watering your front lawn/yard the night before, and the day of, your street being sealed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Once complete, your streets will look much better and last much longer.
