Seal Coat Process

The City Streets Department has the responsibility to maintain all public streets and alleys within the City of Amarillo.

Seal Coat, sometimes referred to as Chip Seal, is Amarillo’s primary street maintenance activity for residential streets. This preventive maintenance activity is necessary to prolong the life of an asphalt street. Without a seal coat every 8-10 years the asphalt would oxidize, dry out and lose flexibility. Loss of asphalt flexibility leads to cracking, water infiltration,  potholes  and failure of the structural components of the roadbed.

WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVINENCE DURING THIS PAVEMENT PRESERVATION ACTIVITY.
