Cul-de-sacs will receive what is called a fog seal. The fog seal process received its name because it is applied on the surface of the existing pavement in the form of a fine mist. The asphalt that will be utilized is called a Tire Rubber Modified Surface Sealant (TRMSS) and is an asphalt that has been modified to be more rigid than typical asphalt and can be driven on directly. For this reason, there will not be any rock applied as part of the resurfacing. Consequently, the friction from vehicle tires will cause the fog seal to wear more quickly than the seal coat that was applied on the straight sections of streets, and cul-de-sacs will need to be resurfaced more frequently.
