Preservation Overlays

Preservation overlays, commonly known as simple resurfacing, consists of placing 1.5 inches to 2 inches of asphalt on the surface of a road.   This technique is done on heavier traveled roads that are considered in moderately good shape.    Preservation overlay extends the life of the road until there is a longer term project such as reconstruction or resurfacing with extensive work done on the road's base.    The projects are either funded federally or by the RCOC through local dollars.  

Most projects can be done quickly and often under flaggers directing traffic within the construction zone.   Approximately 37 miles of roads will be done in 2017 under the RCOC Preservation Overlay program.   

The Preservation Overlay program is expected to begin late April/early May.    The work is also weather-dependent.
