LIST OF 2018 STREETS RECEIVING SLURRY SEAL

PROCESS:

  1. Pre-work: Weed pulling and cracks filling
  2. Repair: Perform localized repairs
  3. Paving: Paving the road with slurry seal 
  4. Paving: Apply a final layer if needed and dry

Post Street Sweeping: Due to the nature of a slurry seal treatment, there is an anticipated loss of asphalt material. On average, 10 percent of pavement material is lost over the first 30 days. This fluctuates depending on traffic. The contractor will be scheduling periodic street sweepings on the affected roadways, sidewalks and driveways during the first 30 days after the treatment has been applied to reduce loose gravel and debris. The street sweeping occurs on the 3rd, 7th and 14th day after slurry seal is applied. 

CONSTRUCTION HOURS:

  • Construction may occur anytime between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Construction for locations within school zones will be between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

LENGTH OF PROJECT:

Construction may take place in multiple phases, extending work on your street across several days.  Signs will be posted on the street prior to the start of work.

PARKING AND STREET ACCESS DURING CONSTRUCTION:

During pre-work:

checkmark Driving on street allowed.
checkmark Parking on street allowed.
checkmark Parking in driveway allowed.

During paving:

blue-X Driving on slurry seal restricted until end of workday (between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.)
blue-X Parking on street restricted (cars must be parked 1,000 feet away from construction site). All cars in the “No Parking” zone during construction time will be towed.
checkmark Parking in driveway allowed, but there will be no access in and out of a driveway once treatment is applied until end of work day.
blue-X Once street is resurfaced, it will be closed until the end of the work day to allow for the slurry seal to dry.

PLEASE NOTE: The City and project contractor will coordinate with trash companies, the post office and other agencies to minimize any disruption of services.

HELPFUL TIPS:

Do

  • Park off-street during construction and pay close attention to parking notices. There will be detailed notices explaining when the streets will be closed and re-opened throughout the resurfacing process. 
  • Make a plan for when you will need your car during construction. Driving through the newly resurfaced street will ruin your car, driveways and the project, forcing contractors to begin again.
  • Drive slowly through the construction zone during the times cars are allowed on the street. This will prevent rock-fragments from damaging windshields.
  • Keep children and pets away from the street during resurfacing. At times the pavement will be extremely hot and dangerous. 

Don’t

  • Don’t run water onto the street the night before or after construction. Run-off will delay work and damage the new surfacing.
