What to Expect

Once the contractor places cones and temporary “No Parking” signage in front of your residence or business, the work is scheduled to begin within the next 24 hours. But keep in mind that weather or equipment problems may occur which delays work. Typical work hours are 7 a.m to 7 p.m. Access to driveways may be limited at times during the work. Residents who need accommodations are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible.

  • Emergency access will be maintained at all times.
  • There will be heavy machinery, loud noises, dust, and vibrations throughout the repaving process.
  • Night time paving may be allowed in some locations depending on traffic impacts and noise variances
  • There may be lane closures or lane shifts to accommodate work.

Please use caution when driving in areas of heavy equipment, especially if you live on or near a cul-de-sac.

Keep in Mind

  • Fresh pavement is hot, oily and extremely sticky.  To remove sticky tar or asphalt from car or shoes, use fresh soap and water or a citrus-based cleaner.  Do not use petroleum-based cleaners.
  • During the first year on a hot summer days, Slurry Seal will become soft because the pavement has not had a season to cure. 

How You Can Help

If your neighborhood is part of the program, please obey all temporary placed “No Parking” signs in the work areas to avoid towing of vehicles to an adjacent street without “No Parking” signs. Keep off and avoid new pavement when walking.


The City’s Pavement Maintenance Program utilizes both internal crews and contractors to support the City’s Pavement Maintenance Program.  If you have any further questions, please contact the City of Arvada Engineering Permits at 720-898-7640.

Types of Pavement Treatments

The work will consist of various types of pavement treatments. The chosen treatment is determined based on the roadway’s existing structure. The treatment types are:

  • Crack Seal - Crack Sealing is utilized to seal the cracks to protect from water intrusion and other damaging factors.  This is one of the city’s most cost effective preventative maintenance strategies in reducing asphalt deterioration and prolonging pavement life.  Residents on the effected streets will see "No Parking" signs placed 48 hours prior to work starting.
  • Slurry Seal - Slurry seal is a thin restorative surface treatment that does not require milling and extends the useful life of asphalt by keeping air and water out and stopping oxidation. 
  • Hot applied chip seal - Hot applied chip seal is a combination between a liquid asphalt emulsion and a thin layer of open graded friction course (rock). This process provides a durable surface and waterproof membrane that will improve the existing asphalt.
  • Mill-Patch-Overlay - Typically, we will grind down the existing roadway, sometimes just edges, and other times the whole width of the road.  The milling follows with asphalt patching in identified problem areas, then full-width overlay of asphalt is applied. For milling and overlay, the contractor will remove the old asphalt (either mill or full removal), place structural subgrade material (if applicable), conduct full-depth patching of damaged asphalt, place the full-width overlay of asphalt. Lane markings will be placed after the asphalt is replaced. The timing of this work may vary.
  • Full Reconstruction - includes removing the entire roadway structure repairing sub base roadway material, then replacing with all new intermediate and overlay courses of asphalt.
