Microsealing of roads begins Wednesday in Warsaw additions

Street Superintendent Jeff Beeler reported to the Warsaw Board of Public Works and Safety Friday that microsealing of roads begins Wednesday, weather permitting.

It will continue for about a month until all city streets are completed.

Microseal is a protective coat that extends the life of pavement and a cost-effective method to renew road surfaces, seal minor cracks and other irregularities.

The roads effected next week will include those in Helser & Sons, Paths of Deerfield and Meadowbrook additions.

Signs and door hangars will be put out one day before the application process. A phone number will be provided on the door hangars.

“If a person has medical needs, that will need to be accommodated so they can get to and from their home,” Beeler said. “Any vehicles … in the roadway after 7 a.m. the day of application will be towed so that work can be completed.”

A map of the project locations will be posted on the city’s website and Facebook page. Updates will be in the news media as well as the Facebook page so residents can keep up with dates, times and locations of the project.

“When they go into those additions, there will be a four-hour time span that you won’t be able to cross over to your vehicle, and then they’ll swap to the other side of the road,” he said.

There will be signs all along the streets.
