Re: Notification of the start of pavement preservation work on your street

This notice has been prepared to inform you of the start of a pavement preservation project on your street. Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, August 27, 2014, Sealcoating Inc., (Sealcoating) of
Braintree, Massachusetts, will mobilize and start work on your street. The pavement preservation work should be completed, weather permitting, within 2 weeks of starting.

Pavement preservation work will consist of crack sealing and the installation of a curb to curb surface treatment called Cape Seal applied on your streets. Both techniques are low cost methods for extending the life of the existing pavement to which it is applied.
Crack sealing consists of the cleaning and sealing of construction and random cracks that have developed in the pavement, which is part of the early on-set of pavement deterioration. An
asphalt-fiber compound designed specifically for improving the strength and performance of the parent asphalt is applied and covered with stone dust, that works into the compound with vehicular
traffic. Within a day or two, the Cape Seal process will be applied which consists of a chip seal (liquid asphalt and stone dust) interlayer course of asphalt is applied across the full width of the
roadway, followed by a micro-surfacing wearing course of asphalt. The chip seal layer must sit on the street at least a few days before the final micro-surfacing course is applied. It will take at least 24-hours for each of the three processes to properly set-up
on your street. Prior to set-up, the emulsion and stone dust material may stick to your shoes or car tires. Please be careful about tracking the material into your homes if it is on your shoes.

Any questions, please contact the City's Engineering Department at (978) 619-5670.

Notification of the Use of the Castle Hill Playground Parking Lot for Staging Area

This notice has been prepared to inform you of the start of the above referenced city-wide pavement
preservation project. Starting Thursday, August 28, 2014, Sealcoating Inc, of Braintree, Massachusetts, and
their subcontractors will mobilize and start storing materials and equipment on the playground parking lot.
The project should be complete and the material and equipment removed, weather permitting, within 2 weeks of starting. Pavement preservation work will consist of two methods: crack sealing and cape sealing, applied on various streets throughout the city.

An asphalt-fiber compound designed specifically for improving the strength and performance of the parent asphalt is applied and covered with stone dust, that works into the compound with vehicular traffic. Cape Seal is another surface treatment in which a chip seal (liquid asphalt and stone dust) interlayer course of asphalt is applied across the full width of the roadway, followed by a micro-surfacing wearing course of asphalt. Both techniques are low cost methods for extending the life of the existing pavement to which it is applied.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may incur during this process.

Residents of Mason Street:

Re: Notification of restricted driveway access on your street

This notice has been prepared to inform you of the start of the sidewalk reconstruction on your street. Starting Tuesday, August 19, 2014, D&R General Contracting, Inc. (D&R Paving) of Melrose, Massachusetts, and their subcontractor will mobilize and restrict access to your driveway starting at 7:00 a.m. The sidewalk work should be completed, weather permitting, within 2 weeks of starting.
The sidewalk work will consist of removing the existing sidewalk and driveway apron material and resetting the granite curbs on either side of the street, installing handicap ramps at each intersection, and pouring concrete to replace the sidewalks. In order to meet the grade of the new sidewalk, in some cases the ends of the driveway will need to be repaved beyond the driveway apron.

This work is expected to take approximately 2 weeks to complete, weather dependent, with the first week primarily spent removing sidewalk and driveway aprons and resetting curb stones, followed by placement of the new sidewalk and driveway apron material. When the sidewalk work is complete, the roadway will be paved with the final course of pavement and the overall project will be complete.

Before the overall project is completed, your roadway will be an active construction site and you should be careful and drive at a reduced speed accordingly. On the days when D&R is working on your street, it is important not to have any cars parked in the roadway. No parking signs will be posted in advance of construction and no-parking will remain in effect until construction is complete for that day. You will always have access to and from your driveway and parking will be allowed on the street after work hours. Police details will always be present to assist residents through the work zone and to facilitate traffic management.

Any questions, please contact the City's Engineering Department at 978-619-5670.
