Sealcoat Work Mid-End of June

The City of Viroqua will be undergoing micro-surfacing on several streets throughout the city. Micro-surfacing is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement. It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt blended with finely crushed stone for traction. Micro-surfacing is a cost-effective method to renew and extend the life of roads and road surfaces. The company hired to perform the work is Struck and Irwin Paving out of Deforest, Wisconsin. 

The first step involves crack sealing and spray patching this is expected to happen the week of June 20th, weather permitted. During this time, you will see them apply a tar like seal or spray, cover it with a thin paper or coat it with fine sand-like material. After all the preparatory work is completed, they will return to apply the micro-surface, which will look similar to new asphalt. This is expected to happen the week of June 27th, also weather permitting. 

This sealcoating will occur on:

  1. Hillcrest/ Terhune- East Avenue to Lincoln Avenue
  2. Chicago Avenue- Marquette Street to Broadway Avenue
  3. Rockview Lane- Parkwood Trail to Termni
  4. J Street- Lincoln Avenue to Terrance Avenue
  5. Heritage Street- Congress Avenue to Western Avenue
