What are those black lines in the road?
As part of the Town’s Roadway (Pavement) Management Program, the Town fills cracks in the roads with a bituminous asphaltic material in order to extend the life of our roads. Filling cracks seals the pavement surface so that stormwater can not enter the road structure which if allowed would cause premature pavement failure during the annual freeze-thaw cycles.
