SPAM Resurfacing Projects
The method of resurfacing chosen for 2018 SPAM was a "chip seal". A chip seal starts by spraying a layer of oil onto the existing street surface to act as a sealant for the old asphalt and a glue for rock chips. After the oil is sprayed, rock chips are spread and rolled into the oil after which the street is driveable again. A chip seal essentially provides a new wear surface for cars to drive on and prolongs the life of the street by seven to ten years.
The streets selected for chip seal in this project were Curtiss Avenue between Beacon and Lindbergh Avenues; Fawn Drive, Deer Run, and Antler Drive; Randolph Avenue from Maple Drive to Exchange Avenue; and all the streets in The Estates at Wilson's Preserve and Greenfield Village.
