Innovative Roadway Solutions, contractor for the City of Columbia, will be applying a surface sealing product to street surfaces beginning Tuesday, Aug. 4. Crews use a fast-drying asphalt sealing solution designed to extend pavement life. This mixture of liquid asphalt, fine aggregates, recycled products and bonding agents also protects the roadway from water intrusion. Streets will remain accessible with lane restrictions. Delays are expected. Flaggers will be present to assist motorists through the work zones.
Work is scheduled to be performed Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., starting Aug. 4 through Aug. 31, weather permitting.

This plan is based on the principle that preventive and rehabilitative street maintenance is more cost-effective than reconstruction.
