Slurry Seal Improvements

You are here

Project Location:

Various streets throughout the City

Project Background:

The City of Salinas manages approximately 290 centerline miles of road network.  It is recommended that pavements receive low-cost maintenance every 5-7 years to avoid higher repair/replacement costs in later years.  The City’s Pavement Management System (PMS) was used to identify current City streets in reasonably good condition to receive a low-cost slurry seal treatment. This project calls for the installation of slurry seal and pavement striping on various arterial and residential streets located throughout the City to provide geographic equity.  Slurry seals typically have a lifespan of 5-7 years. The most recent citywide slurry seal project was completed in 2014.

Project Timeline: 

Spring 2019 through Summer 2019

Application of Slurry Seal should be completed by June 7, 2019.

Application of roadway striping is expected to begin on June 10, 2019 and be completed in a couple of weeks.*

Project Cost/Funding:
