    Seal Coat Best Management Practices
    Seal coating asphalt pavement is widely accepted and is considered a very effective maintenance activity for the preservation of good asphalt surfaces. Choosing the right sections of pavement is where it all begins.

    Project Selection
    It is recommended that a seal coat application be applied to pavements that meet the following criteria:
    • PASER rating of 5 or better
    • Cross culverts inspected and replaced as necessary
    • Recently crack filled (12months or less)
    • Failed pavement areas have been excavated and base patched
    • Minor ruts or depressions have been wedged with hot mix asphalt (HMA)
    • Gravel shoulders have been recently graded to standards
