Seal Coat Best Management Practices
Seal coating asphalt pavement is widely accepted and is considered a very effective maintenance activity for the preservation of good asphalt surfaces. Choosing the right sections of pavement is where it all begins.

Project Selection
It is recommended that a seal coat application be applied to pavements that meet the following criteria:
• PASER rating of 5 or better
• Cross culverts inspected and replaced as necessary
• Recently crack filled (12months or less)
• Failed pavement areas have been excavated and base patched
• Minor ruts or depressions have been wedged with hot mix asphalt (HMA)
• Gravel shoulders have been recently graded to standards
