Annual Slurry Seal Program Begins for the Skyline Area

Between July and August 2015, the "slurry seal treatment" will take place in the Skyline area of the City.

The slurry seal process spreads a thin asphalt and aggregate mixture on the street surface to provide a protective coating to extend the pavement's useful life and improve its appearance. For more detailed information and access to the schedule visit the Slurry Seal webpage. Please check the Slurry Seal webpage regularly for updates or schedule changes due to weather conditions.

If you plan to be moving or have other reasons for why access to your property is critical on a specific day in July or August, please contact the City's Traffic Engineer and Project Manager, Shirley Chan, at (650) 991-8064.

To allow for the work, temporary "NO PARKING" signs with the date and time of no-parking restrictions will be posted 48 hours in advance. Please move your vehicle off the street by 7:00am on the posted day or your vehicle will be towed at your expense.

Wet slurry seal will stick and stain. Walking or driving on wet slurry seal will leave unsightly tracks on the road, stick to shoes, car tires and finishes and stain sidewalks and driveways. Please do not drive or walk on slurry seal until the contractor, American Asphalt Repair and Resurfacing Co., Inc., has removed all barricades and traffic cones. To provide additional alternate parking, the City will suspend normal street sweeping no-parking restrictions on streets adjacent to those being closed for slurry seal work.

We understand road projects like this can be an inconvenience. We will do everything we can to get this job done quickly and efficiently. If you have any questions or require any special attention, please contact Shirley Chan, at (650) 991-8064.
