Citywide Biennial Slurry Seal 2018 (CIP 8262)
Slurry seal maintenance prolongs the life of existing street surfaces and helps minimize costly repairs and reconstruction later as the asphalt pavement degrades. This project will place asphalt slurry over existing paved roads in many different areas throughout the City, and add a new surface to streets that have been reconstructed over the past several years. The slurry seal will also help prevent cracking of the existing paved surface. The project locations are identified by the City’s Pavement Management System. The work will primarily be performed on residential streets. The City Council awarded a construction contract on September 25, 2018. The project is scheduled to begin in fall, 2018.
