*Microsurfacing
Microsurfacing is a pavement preservation technique which consists of applying a thin layer of asphalt on top of the existing asphalt. It is a cost effective way to extend the life of an existing road. Microsurfacing is most effective on a street that is showing its first signs of deterioration such as when the asphalt surface as begun to wear off, a process that is commonly referred to as raveling. Microsurfacing is not intended for streets that have too many surface defects but rather to preserve a street that is still in fair to good condition.
