What is Crack Sealing?


Wet weather can work wonders. Crops grow, lakes fill, and rivers flow, but our roads require a little extra protection from this essential element. The NDOR crews and contractors that maintain Nebraska’s roadways seal cracks and crevices with tar to prevent water from seeping down and wreaking havoc underneath the surface. Be on the lookout for lane closures during cooler weather, when it’s easier to lay down the hot tar – a short delay now means your roads will be safer and smoother in the years to come.
