As shown on the map below, the annual crack seal project will be within the neighborhoods of Rice Creek Plaza North & South, Sylvan Hills, Benjamin Briardale and Gardena. Crack sealing the roadways is a preventative maintenance measure that involves cleaning out cracks and sealing them with an asphalt emulsion. Sealing the cracks prohibits moisture from infiltrating the roadway and causing damage. Work is anticipated to begin the week of June 1st and will be completed by the following week, weather pending. If you have questions, please contact the City of Fridley Engineering Division at 763-572-3554.
