The City of Fridley will begin seal coating 8 miles of streets located in the neighborhoods of Rice Creek Plaza North & South, Sylvan Hills, Hyde Park and Highlands. Work is tentatively scheduled to begin Monday, June 27th, weather permitting. Completion is anticipated by the end of the week. A map of the streets to be seal coated is provided below. More information can be found in the official mailed public notice.
Seal coating is a common preventative maintenance activity that involves spraying liquid emulsions on the surface of the existing pavement followed by a cover of aggregate.
If you reside or do business on one of the streets to be seal coated, please keep vehicles off the street during the weekdays (7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.) until seal coat operations are complete.
During the work, driveways will be inaccessible for a period of about thirty minutes or less. Signs will be posted to keep traffic off specific streets until the contractor completes the work. Please obey signage and flaggers for your safety, workers' safety, and to prevent damage to your vehicle. This will allow the contractor to complete the work more quickly, and cause you less inconvenience due to this maintenance work.
Please avoid sudden stops or starts on the freshly seal coated streets. This will keep the work in good condition and reduce the need for future street maintenance. Please note the pavement markings will be repainted after the seal coating is complete.
If you have questions, please contact the City of Fridley Engineering Department at 763-572-3554.
