Week of 5/4/20
Slurry seal treatment to begin this summer
LUT crews will begin applying slurry seal on some roads within the Urban Road Maintenance District (URMD), starting after July 1.

Slurry seal is a preventative maintenance application applied every seven to 10 years to extend the life of the road. It is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, mineral aggregates, water and additives. It is applied as a liquid and requires several hours to cure. It’s important for pedestrians, vehicles and bikes to be off the street until it is ready for travel.

Crews will be doing some minor patching, street cleaning, crack sealing and other roadwork in preparation for slurry seal application.  Learn more
