FY2009-11 RESIDENTIAL STREET SLURRY SEAL PROGRAM, I-100 (SUMMER 2012)

Engineering Manager: Craig Bilezerian, P.E.

Project Engineer: Davina Buenavista

 

DESCRIPTION

Slurry seal is a liquid mixture of asphalt emulsion and sand that, when applied, extends the life of existing asphalt pavement and improves the appearance of a neighborhood. Slurry seal is a cost-effective method of maintaining the City's residential roadways. The City maintains more than 69 million square feet of asphalt roadways, most of which are in residential areas. Each year slurry seal is applied to approximately 3 million square feet of residential roadways in approximately 5 neighborhoods. The work is performed during the summer due to the warm temperatures.

The application of slurry seal requires that the City close a street or street segment for one (1) day and between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The work is usually scheduled on a weekday, however, not on the same day of trash collection for that street. One week prior to the slurry seal application, the City distributes a Notice to affected residents. The Notice includes a map of streets to be slurry sealed and the dates for the work. Two (2) days, or 48 hours, before the actual work on a specific street, the City's contractor issues a Notice (by door hanger) and posts temporary "NO PARKING" signs on the streets.
