Road Crews in Columbia Are Fixing Side Streets
Every year, the city chooses the streets that need the most work. The city is spending $175,000 on this year's road improvements as a part of its annual street repair.
Chip seal is a treatment for roads that are not damaged enough to get an asphalt overlay, which is more expensive. The treatment helps prevent water from going into the road and doing more damage by filling in any cracks.
The city can only perform this treatment in the summertime when the asphalt plant is open.
Crews will be working on the streets until July 16, 2010.
