This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of current best practices for seal-coat operations in Minnesota, including how to design and implement a seal-coat operation.

 Micro/Slurry has been used in Minnesota since early 1990’s, yet a vast number of agencies has no experience with them. This class will discuss what micro/slurry surfacing is.  What is the difference between the two?
