The City began its annual street resurfacing project in October 2022 by focusing on preserving approximately 18 miles of streets that are in fair condition and extending their useful life. This is an important approach to managing the City’s street pavement inventory. By addressing the streets in a fair-to-good condition first, the City is preserving more than one-third of the street inventory and providing a proper traveling surface free of potholes and cracks using a very affordable slurry seal process. This process will focus on filing any cracks, repairing any potholes, and then sealing with a thin layer of asphalt slurry that seals the street. In addition to the slurry seal of the streets, the project will focus on addressing concrete repairs to the curb and gutter along the street. A full list of streets to be addressed as part of Phase 1 is shown below, along with a map of the streets. Repairs are expected to begin in October 2022, and slurry seal of streets in Phase 1 will continue through January 2023.

The City is resurfacing approximately 18 miles of streets from December 2022 through the end of January 2023. During this time, the City’s contractor will be shutting down sections of streets for roughly 8 hours so that they can spread the slurry seal on the street surface and allow time for it to cure properly. 

Here are some common questions about the Slurry Seal that is used to preserve streets that are in fair to good condition.

How is the Slurry Seal different than traditional asphalt paving?

With traditional asphalt paving, the top surface of the asphalt is ground away and a new asphalt surface is added. This is typically done on streets that have significant wear, cracking, and potholes. Slurry seal is used as a preservation treatment on streets that are in fair to good condition. It is ¼” coating that seals all cracks, preventing further deterioration and development of potholes. A drive driving surface is created by the slurry seal coat.

When is it safe to drive on the new surface?

Once the contractor has opened the street at the end of the workday, it is safe to drive. Until the contractor removes the barriers closing the streets, it is important that all pedestrians and motorists stay off the surface until it has properly cured.

The slurry seal looks rough and I can see imperfections in the surface like the wheel tracks from the contractors equipment. Is this how it will always look?

When the slurry seal lays down it shows the workmanship of the contractor for a few months. With time and especially when the summer months come along and the road surface starts to heat up, the material will settle and smooth out more as vehicles and street sweepers pass over the surface.

When will the lane markings and stop lines be repainted on the surface?

Once the slurry seal work is completed by late January, the finish work will come along in February. We anticipate that striping and marking of the roads will happen in the months of February and March.


Below, please find the tentative schedule for the slurry seal. Check back for updates.



The City has completed the design of a more robust two- and three-step slurry seal process for streets that are moderately to significantly deteriorated with cracks and potholes. These are streets that typically require an overlay treatment. This two- and three-step process involves multiple layers of asphalt slurry that help to fill, level, and create a more acceptable travel surface to the road at a significant reduction in price, when compared to traditional overlays.

Up to an additional 12 miles of streets will be paved using the two- and three-step slurry process over the next year. A contract will be awarded in November 2022 and the work will take place throughout the 2023 calendar year. The list and map of streets to be resurfaced as part of Phase 2 will be available in December 2022.
