The second step involves application of the slurry seal. Once applied the road will be closed to traffic for a few hours to allow for the seal to harden. During this time residents will need to avoid accessing the roads and their driveway. Once the slurry seal process is completed the road surface will be smooth similar to a typical paving project.

Hardyston Township Road Resurfacing Projects

Hardyston Township as part of their ongoing roadway maintenance program evaluates the condition of the road system and schedules roads for paving, tar & stone or a new process known as cape seal. Road improvements and maintenance are included as part of the Township’s annual capital improvement budget.

The following roads are tentatively scheduled for improvement starting the week of August 10th and will continue throughout August and September. All scheduled work is subject to change based on weather conditions.

More About Cape Seal –

Cape Seal is an innovative method for resurfacing ways in a more cost effective manner than typical paving. Cape Seal is a multi-step process that involves road preparation, followed by the application of tar & stone, and finally a slurry seal application that smooths out the roadway.

Over the last several weeks, the Hardyston Department of Public Works have made preparations by performing pot hole repairs, paving, and catch basin renovations in an effort to extend the life of your roadway and improve storm water runoff.

The next step is the tar & stone application process which is expected to begin the week of August 10th.  The tar & stone will need to settle and harden before application of the slurry seal process (1-2 weeks). Drivers and pedestrians should exercise caution when traveling on roads that have recently received the tar and stone application until loose stone has been swept from the road surface.

The slurry seal process will be applied within a few weeks of the tar and stone. Once applied the road will be closed to traffic for a few hours to allow for the seal to harden. During this time residents will need to avoid accessing the roads and their driveway. 24-48 hours’ notice will be given to residents prior to any road closures. Once the slurry seal process is completed the road surface will be smooth similar to a typically paving project.
