In total, just under two miles of City streets will receive a slurry seal treatment.

Advanced notice will be given to every residence prior to the scheduled start date. Residents, who park their vehicles on these streets, must remove their vehicles from the street so that crews can apply the slurry seals. Any vehicles found on the above-mentioned streets after the scheduled start date will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Slurry seals are a thin layer of aggregate (very small rock) with an asphalt emulsifier applied to a paved surface. Slurry seals are applied in order to help preserve and protect the underlying pavement structure and provide a new driving surface

“Essentially, you can think of a slurry seal as sunscreen for asphalt,” says Public Works Director Brice Perkins. “This helps protect the pavement and provide a smooth surface for driving. Applying slurry seals also helps us achieve our goal of providing quality public infrastructure at the lowest life cycle cost.”
