Fall Surface Treating of Roads to Commence

Beginning Monday September 26th, 2016, Dosch-King Company will be applying a surface treatment to the following roads in Narragansett:

Hawthorne Avenue, Capt Freebody Road, Pocono Rd, Old Ocen Rd, Ocean Spray Ave, Ocean View Dr
Philip Dr, Manor Dr, Crest Dr, East Pond Rd, Robertson Rd, Collins St, Durkin Dr, James St, Martin Ct,
Margaret St, Kathy St, Alexander Dr, Gloucester Rd, Bristol Rd, Hope Lane, Ashley Ct 

Why Surface Treat?

Surface treating (also known as Stone Sealing) is a cost effective method of treat pavement surfaces to slow down the rate of deterioration and extend the useful life of the pavement. To be a good candidate for this treatment, the pavement needs to be structurally sound with no significant defects. The roads that have been selected have already been Crack Filled with any localized defects repaired by hot patch. Stone Sealing, Crack Filling and Hot Patching are key components of a strong Pavement Preservation Program.

The Stone Sealing needs at least a week to cure and set, and for traffic to work the stone in. After at least a week has passed, Public Works sweepers will come and sweep up the excess stone.

We appreciate your patience, and apologize for any inconvenience.
