Jasper (NNDC) – The Jasper Street Department says it will be using a new asphalt emulsion liquid road coating to several city streets over the next couple of weeks.

Street department commissioner Jeff Theising says says the surface coating is similar to seal coating, but is “thicker, more durable & designed to wear/last longer than ordinary seal coating.”

He says the city has used the coating in the past and its use has drawn complements from city residents…

Theising says the road coating project will being Wednesday, July 6th barring inclement weather or any other unforeseen events.

He says each street will be closed for approximately two days; again depending on weather & material drying conditions.

Vehicles WILL NOT be allowed on these streets during coating process and vehicles must be removed from garages & driveways prior to 7:00 A.M. the day of the recoating.

Residents on each street being recoated will be notified a day prior to the beginning of work being done to that street.
