At all times, please drive cautiously and watch for direction from traffic flaggers. Thank you.
Microsurfacing is a mixture of polymer-modified asphalt emulsion, mineral aggregates, water and additives. This is a “quick set” preventative maintenance treatment, extending the life of the road surface in an economical way while minimizing delays compared to other surface treatments.
A microsurfacing treatment extends the life of a road by five to twelve years and provides a new sealed surface at a fraction of the cost of an asphalt overlay. The installation will occur quickly as the mixture is sprayed onto the existing road surface and (depending on weather conditions) traffic can drive on the new surface within a few hours. During the installation period, you may need to park in an alternate location as driveway access will be blocked. The Contractor will provide doorhanger and signage notification in advance of the installation date. Cars, bicycles, children of all ages and pets should all be kept off the new surface until it solidifies since the microsurface material will stick to shoes, carpeting or a car.
Please note that the new surface can be rough at first and generate fine debris. Traffic driving over the surface will help roll and smooth the surface. Some loose gravel may remain on the road for a few days, so driving slowly in your residential neighborhood is particularly important to prevent loose gravel from being thrown from tires while helping compact the road surface.

There is an established procedure if you want to create a PRD Zone of Benefit.
Since the 2009 changes in California County Service Area law now requires CSAs to be perpetually funded, a CSA with no source of income may be considered for dissolution.
