Local Road Project Alerts

Chip Sealing information

Chip and Fog Sealing programs consist of maintenance to prolong the life of selected streets.  These improvements include the following:

  1. Crack sealing the street
  2. Removing the street's edge berm to expose the entire surface of the road
  3. Applying the chip seal material to the street
  4. Sealing the newly installed chip seal with an emulsion fog spray
  5. Sweeping any loose stones

*Note: during the street's edge berm removal, a small section of yards along the street will be removed by equipment to totally expose the street surface and any damage to your yard will be restored following the completion of the project.

Mill and Fill Information

The City of Portage Street Mill and Fill Program consists of major maintenance to selected streets to enhance structural integrity and ride quality, as well as prolong the life of the street. These improvements include the removal of badly worn areas of the road and overlaying the surface with 1.5 inches of new asphalt.

Tac Coat Warning

Residents should be aware that a “tac coat” (oily substance) is sprayed on the street prior to paving in order to bond the new asphalt to the old surface.  Driving on the tac coat should be avoided as this material may attach to tires and vehicle undercarriages, and may be carried onto your driveway or garage floor.

General Program Information

Advanced Notification

Affected residents will be notified via an informational door hanger on the day prior to the scheduled construction for your specific street. 

One Lane Travel

One lane of travel will remain open during the resurfacing process.
