A slurry seal is the application of a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate (very small, crushed rocks), and additives to an existing asphalt pavement surface. Slurry seal should last approximately 6-9 years.
Micro surfacing is similar to slurry seal, it consists of the application of a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate, and chemical additives to an existing asphalt pavement surface. The life expectancy of micro surfacing treatment is 5-7 years.
You will receive a door hanger 48 hours prior to the slurry seal work taking place. On the designated day, the contractor will be placing slurry seal on multiple streets, some streets will begin in the morning while others in the afternoon.
Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles from the street on the day work will take place to ensure the contractor can complete the work without delays.
If you have a conflict on the particular day that work is going to take place you may contact Public Works at 817-427-6460 and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
The typical time that a street will be closed is 4 hours. This includes placing the slurry seal on the street and curing time.
You may drive on the street once all the traffic control devices are removed. We encourage residents to limit cutting your wheel while backing up to prevent leaving marks in the fresh slurry seal.
We have made every effort to schedule the work to take place on days when trash collection does not occur.
