ANNUAL SLURRY SEAL PROGRAM

On September 27, 2004, a slurry seal project will begin in the southern portion of Moreno Valley, generally bounded by Cactus Avenue on the north, City limits to the south, Lasselle Street on the east, and Heacock Street on the west. Approximately 370 street segments will be slurry sealed.

The slurry seal process involves the spreading of an asphalt emulsion and mixture coating on existing asphalt concrete pavement to seal the pavement against environmental effects. The slurry seal process extends the pavement life by an additional 5 to 6 years and saves taxpayer dollars.

Construction work hours are 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. All work adjacent to schools will be completed on Saturday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Weather permitting, this slurry seal work should be completed by January 2005.

This project is being funded with Measure “A” Funds (half-cent local sales tax monies).

For more information about the City’s slurry seal program, contact senior engineer Peter Ramey at 413.3134, or call the Moreno Valley Capital Projects Division at 413.3130.
