The city of Moberly is set to begin the application of microseal to various city streets.
The application process, which was scheduled to begin Friday but was delayed due to weather concerns, is set to extend through Monday, Aug. 29. It will require parts of several Moberly streets to be temporarily blocked as crews work.
“We ask for your patience and that community members give city crews plenty of room to complete street improvements in a timely manner,” according to a city of Moberly press release.
The application of the microseal will be followed with around four hours of “cure time” to allow the material to set without damage from traffic, officials said.
“This microseal application creates a structurally sound asphalt pavement while limiting the deterioration of the surface aggregate along with filling minor rutting and small pot holes,” said Moberly Public Works Director Tom Sanders in the press release. “This treatment can add up to 10 years of service life.”
Weather permitting, crews will apply microseal to the following areas on Monday, according to a city of Moberly press release: Sinnock Avenue, from Kennedy Drive to the overpass; Holman Road, from Myra Street to the beginning of the concrete at Henry Street; Concannon Street, from Johnson Street to Myra Street; Rothwell Park, in the lot by the skate park; in the alley east of Casey's on South Morley Street; and in the L-shaped alley from 6th Street to Gilman Street.
