Annual Slurry Seal Project 2019

April 24, 2019 - May 31, 2019

Post Date:04/26/2019 7:00 AM

Update 5/13/19 - The City's contractor will be striping the newly slurried streets through May 31, 2019.

Our Annual Slurry Seal Project is in progress from April 24, 2019 - May 17, 2019.  Construction work will occur Monday to Friday between the hours of 7:30 AM and 5:00 PM.

Please see the Project Street Schedule and Project Map for the exact locations.  Informational Notices were mailed to all residents in the construction area during the week of April 8, 2019.

American Asphalt South, Inc. will be applying Slurry Seal and Asphalt Rubber Aggregate Membrane (ARAM) treatments on streets in your neighborhood.  Slurry Seal is a mixture of fine aggregates and emulsified asphalt.  ARAM is the application of a rubberized membrane, comprised of scrap tire rubber and tires with a high natural rubber content.  These street treatments will increase skid resistance, prolong pavement life by protecting the surface from ultraviolet rays, seal the cracks, and reduce the opportunity for potholes to form.  Following the initial slurry seal application, it is normal to see some shedding of tiny rock for up to six weeks, and most of that material will be collected during street sweeping operations.

 

SLURRY SEAL and ARAM APPLICATIONS - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What time does the work start and end?

Work will occur daily between 7:30 AM and 5:00 PM throughout the duration of the construction project. However, the slurry seal application should last no more than one day directly in front of your house.

 

 

Can I drive, ride a bike or walk on top of the slurry the day the slurry seal has been applied?

 No. Slurry seal applications take time to cure (approximately 5 hours). Any impact that occurs before the street has had time to cure will leave a permanent mark on the street, vehicle tires and on shoes.

Please do not drive, ride a bike, or walk on the slurry sealed street until the contractor has removed all barricades and traffic cones. Access to freshly slurried streets is usually granted by 7:00 PM on the same day.

On the day of slurry please move your vehicle from the street by 7:30 AM. Observe the dates on the No Parking/Tow Away signs carefully. Vehicles parked on posted streets will be towed in order to allow the work to commence as scheduled.

Please be safe!  Keep Children Away - the slurry material used is a brown color and can be inviting to children.  As it cures, it turns to black and can only be removed from hands and clothing with automotive cleaning solvent.

 

Can I access my front driveway while the work is underway?

No. Access to and from your driveway will be prohibited during the slurry seal application.  We suggest that you park your vehicle on another nearby street outside the work area before 7:30 AM, if you need to use it during the construction hours.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Can I discharge water into the street that day?

No. Please do not water the lawn, as any running water will ruin the slurry.
