Street Sealing
Annual Street Sealing Program

Garden City's Pavement Management Program is in charge of construction projects involving pavement repair, crack sealing, and chip sealing treatment. While Garden City's Engineering Department is in charge of total reconstruction street projects involving milling and overlay, or concrete. Every year, approximately 20 miles of City streets undergo a routine maintenance program involving cracking sealing, repairing of all bad spots (potholes), and finishing with a chip seal treatment. This is done on a six-year rotation plan.


The City currently does the Crack Sealing and Street Sealing in six cycles:

  • Cycle 1 - Southwest Section of town (south of Kansas Avenue and west of Eighth Street)
  • Cycle 2 - Northwest Section of town (north of Kansas Avenue, south of Mary Street and east of Third Street)
  • Cycle 3 - Southeast Section of town (south of Kansas Avenue and east of Main Street)
  • Cycle 4 - North of Kansas Avenue, South of Mary and east of Third Street
  • Cycle 5 - North of Mary Street and north of Kansas Avenue and east of Taylor Avenue
  • Cycle 6 - North of Kansas Avenue and east of Campus Drive, south of Kansas Avenue and east of Center Street

Annual Crack Sealing Program

The Annual Crack Sealing Program is usually conducted and completed in the fall and winter months.  This allows the cracks in the streets to open up and received the best results.  The main goal is to keep moisture from penetrating into the road base which causes potholes and to control weeds and grass from growing in the cracks.
