Town Hall Pavement Preservation Project

Another recent pavement preservation project was the one done at Town Hall (see before and after photos below).

The Public Works department partnered with GuardTop on this pilot project to test a new pavement preservation material. GuardTop donated 1/3 of the material utilized on the projects, therefore making our dollars go farther.
