Summer Preventative Maintenance

Construction Street

Preventative street maintenance is scheduled to take place during the month of June that will have an impact on several major streets in East Grand Rapids.

Traffic on the streets noted during these times will be impacted. The City encourages motorists and residents avoid these streets during the timeframes noted by seeking alternative routes or plan extra time for their destinations with traffic delays present.

The schedule is subject to change depending on weather. This preventative maintenance work and treatment applications are made possible by the 2015 Streets and Sidewalks Millage and are important to maintain City streets. The City appreciates patience and understanding while this important work takes place.

*What is a cape seal? 

A cape seal is a thin surface treatment constructed using a two-step process. The first step involves the contractor placing a “chip seal” layer, which places small graded stones (chips) on a liquid asphalt blend that is sprayed on the pavement surface. The chip seal is rolled to embed the chips securely to the road surface. The contractor will then use a street sweeper to remove loose stone. The second step involves an asphalt slurry seal, which is applied on top of the chip seal, normally within 1-2 weeks after the chip seal


Crack sealing


City crews are also crack sealing, weather permitting, about 2-3 days per week in accordance with the map and street list below throughout the summer.
