Crack sealing will be complete over the next four weeks, pending weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances. 

Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should use caution while in the work zone area. Crack sealant takes about 30 - 40 minutes to dry once it has been applied. Vehicles approaching a road that has been crack sealed should slow down to minimize sand disruption. 

Why is sand applied after crack sealing?

Sand applied over sealed cracks is an important component of the crack sealing process for two reasons:

  1. It allows vehicles to drive over freshly sealed cracks without the emulsion product sticking to the vehicle tires; and
  2. It is needed to properly bond the sealant to the road surface. 

Once the sand is applied, crews will leave it on the roadway for two days, then remove it using the street sweeper. 

The City of Yorkton thanks businesses and residents for their understanding and patience. Slow down and be safe. Workers and their families are relying on you. Visit Current Alerts for other traffic restrictions.
