A slurry seal project has not been done in the City since 2014. Staff reviewed the last time that slurry was applied to each street and streets that have not received slurry within the past 7-8 years were selected. This project will include approximately 19 million square feet of residential streets, which represents about 50% of all City maintained residential streets. In approximately 2 years, another slurry project will be completed which will include most of the remaining residential streets.
Once all streets are done, then the City will implement a program to slurry smaller sections of residential streets on a rotational basis so that all streets receive slurry every 5-7 years.
Unfortunately no. The scope of work for the current project has been finalized and first-round streets were carefully selected. Streets not done in this project will be done in two years, if they are residential streets maintained by the City.
No. The scope of work for the current project has been finalized. Slurry sealing is an important investment in a street's maintenance and adds to the longevity and quality of the road.
Our contractor is scheduling about two weeks out and must factor in trash pick-ups, school schedules, weather, and much more. When we receive new schedules we will post them at www.MurrietaCA.Gov/streets. We will also post reminders on the City's social media pages when new schedules are available. www.Facebook.com/CityofMurrieta
These schedules can change due to rain or other unexpected delays and we will update the schedules accordingly.
No. Streets in gated communities or in communities that have streets designated as private or are otherwise streets that do not conform to City standards and were not accepted for maintenance by the City (i.e.- Bear Creek, Greer Ranch, Jackson Crossing, The Colony, Via Princessa area) will not receive slurry.
No. A slurry application, and the crack sealing that takes place before applying slurry, is intended to seal the street from water penetration which will extend the life of the pavement. The application is not intended to “repave” the street by replacing the existing pavement. Streets will look better, though.
We stagger streets to allow for residents to enter and leave the neighborhood. If streets are include in this phase of the project, we will come back to them.
The dark black color will eventually oxidize due to exposure to sunlight and will fade to a gray color.
There are a variety of factors that impact the color of newly applied slurry including air and surface temperature, humidity, water from rain or sprinklers. Normally, the brown color will turn to a deeper black when it is exposed to the heat of the sun and allowed to cure.
We know you won't do that. But if you did, there is a good chance that it would damage the work in your neighborhood by leaving deep groves in the road. It may also damage your vehicle.The City would then have to decide if the street is to be redone or repaired, which costs thousand of dollars. In the case of intentional damage, this cost could be passed on to the driver or his/her insurance.
Please don't drive on wet slurry.
Please contact the City’s Contractor, American Asphalt South, at 909-427-8276 to submit a claim.
You may leave your car in your driveway. You may not be able to leave the driveway if the slurry work is in process. You may have to wait a few hours. If you know you will need to use your car, please park on a nearby street that is not on the slurry schedule.
Please call the City’s contractor, American Asphalt South, at 909-427-8276 to discuss how this will affect your activity. The contractor will make every attempt to accommodate your needs.
We cannot apply slurry seal in the rain, so any planned work on rain days will be rescheduled. Our goal is to keep our schedule intact, so we will pick up according to the schedule after the rains and weave in the skipped streets when possible. As always, signs will be posted 72 hours prior to work starting.
