2021 Citywide Slurry Seal Project


Slurry preparation work (spraying for weeds, crack fill, asphalt repair) is scheduled to take place October 4-29.

Weekly slurry application schedules will be posted on this page beginning October 25, 2021, for work starting November 1. 

Advanced Notification Flyer (Delivered to impacted properties the week of October 4, 2021)

Project Description:

Application of asphalt emulsion and aggregate rock (Slurry) to approximately 10 million square feet of local streets in the City of Murrieta, which represents about 25% of local streets. Contractor will perform repair of significant asphalt defects, filling of cracks, removal/replacement of pavement striping and markings, and slurry application.

Streets for this project were selected using the Pavement Condition Index (PCI), which is a numerical rating between 0 and 100 used to indicate the condition of a specific section of road pavement. Streets with a lower PCI were included. Any local streets not completed during the 2019 Slurry Project or the 2021 Slurry Project will be completed in the 2023 Slurry Project. 

Project Purpose:

Slurry seal is applied in order to help preserve and protect the underlying pavement structure and provide a new driving surface, which will wear over time. Crack fill and slurry help prevent water from penetrating the surface and degrading the underlying structure.

Project Schedules:

Due to the number of variables involved in scheduling, it is not possible to notify residents about when their street will be scheduled for slurry application until a few weeks ahead of time. This web page will have links to schedule maps which will also be announced over City social media channels. Also, at least 72 hours ahead of the date scheduled, NO PARKING signs will be placed at regular intervals on affected streets and doorhangers will be left at homes to provide more information.
