This year’s Slurry Seal pavement preservation project is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 10, and should take approximately 2 weeks to complete. The project will treat streets primarily in the Hills West and Orchard area neighborhoods.
Slurry Seal is a mixture of fine aggregate and emulsified asphalt that is applied to residential roads. This preventative maintenance extends the life of existing asphalt while sealing it from the harmful effects of water penetration and sun. Slurry Seal is a cost-effective treatment that provides a new wearing surface that lasts five to ten years. The application usually requires a one-day road closure.
Residents will be given notices by the contractor, One-Way-Trigger from Sacramento, California, both one week and the day before work will begin on their streets. Additionally, no parking signs will be in place a few days before, warning about parking on the streets. Contact information for One-Way-Trigger is included on the notices.
To minimize damage to the slurry seal mix and to avoid tracking oil on cars, bikes, and shoes, residents are encouraged to obey posted construction signs and stay off the street until it fully reopens.
