The city of Highland began a slurry seal project on Monday, Sept. 9.
This project consists of slurry seal treatment of 381 street segments city-wide bound between Lankershim Avenue and eastern city limits, primarily in residential streets.
The project also includes application of slurry seal on parking lots at five public facilities including City Hall, Highland Police Station, the community center/YMCA, the Highland library and the city's corporate yard.
The slurry seal process consists of applying a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate (very small crushed rock – sand) and additives to the existing asphalt pavement surface to seal the pavement surface from moisture and thus extend the pavement service life.
This process requires the closure of the street for one day between the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Driveway access will be limited until 7:30 a.m. on the scheduled day of work. To plan accordingly, the contractor will provide residents 48 hours advance notice of street closures. In addition, temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted on streets with a specific date start date written on it.
Notices will be distributed to all affected residents outlining the proposed work as well as providing insightful tips on how to decrease the inconvenience during construction.
Construction is anticipated to be completed by early December 2019. This project is funded by combination of funds including $502,385 of SB-1 Gas Tax funds.
