Surface Treatment

The City of Toledo has nearly 200 miles of unimproved residential streets.  These are typically streets of minimal to no road base depth, and often without curbs or proper drainage.  SBH provides a chip and seal layer to unimproved residential streets every four to seven years as necessary to maintain an acceptable wearing surface.

Handbills (blue paper attached to your doorknob) should be delivered to each home approximately one week prior to the surface treatment application on a particular street. 

A small pilot program involving different size stone was tested in 2017.  Materials are being reviewed prior to the implementation of a 2018 program.
