2021 Sealcoat Project

The City of Chanhassen is planning to sealcoat approximately 2 miles of local streets in the northeast part of the City this summer (see the project maps). The City sealcoats streets as a preventative maintenance practice, which extends the service life of the pavement while avoiding more costly improvement projects such as overlays, reclamations, and reconstructions.

Sealcoating is the process of applying an emulsion oil to the pavement surface followed by an application of rock chips, which are then rolled and pressed into the oil creating a thin, new wear surface. Any excess rock chips are swept up within a few days after they are initially placed, and a follow-up sweeping occurs 3 weeks later. The sealcoating process moves along quite rapidly, therefore, any delays in travel should be minimal.

The day prior to the sealcoat operation within the project area, temporary “No Parking” signs will be placed in the boulevard. Please refrain from parking vehicles, trailers, running sprinkler systems, or placing landscape material of any kind on the city streets where “No Parking” signs are present. The signs will be removed after completion of the sealcoat application.

This year’s project is tentatively scheduled to begin on July 22, 2021, depending on the weather, and to be completed no later than August 31, 2021. 

Temporary No Parking:  Monday, August 16th

Street sweeping of excess rock chips will be occurring, Please do not park on the streets, on Monday, until the street sweeping is completed.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Final Sweep:

The City will perform a third and final sweeping of excess chip rocks in September.
