Protect the Paws!

Please Remember - Protect the Paws!

This is a friendly reminder to please be aware of little paws, while the Main St. Streetscape & Confluence Area CIP projects begin to place asphalt!
Asphalt reaches around 225° F when laid – nearly 13° hotter than the boiling point of water, at 212° F. The freshly-laid surface opens to traffic very shortly after the hot asphalt is placed, as vehicle tires can withstand the warm temperature. However, pads on dogs’ paws are not as durable, and while the road may be open to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the extreme heat of the newly-placed asphalt may still be present.

Consider placing the back of your hand on any patch or area with new asphalt – if you cannot hold it down for 5 seconds, then the surface is too hot for dogs.  

The Town will continue to send eblast notices when new asphalt is anticipated to be placed; however, always err on the side of caution and apply the 5-second rule. 

Your pooch is counting on you to protect its paws!
