[ARCHIVED] Annual Slurry Seal 2019
Each year the City of Santa Rosa slurry seals the pavement of about 2.5 million square feet of City streets. The streets to be slurry sealed are selected based on the condition of the pavement identified by the City's Pavement Management Program
and are grouped into neighborhoods for efficient application. Over the years, streets have been slurry sealed in many neighborhoods throughout Santa Rosa. Streets will be slurry treated between late July and early August 2019. View map of the project area.
Slurry seal is a preventive maintenance which involves applying an emulsified asphalt mixture spread over the existing street surface. It helps protect streets from water penetration, provides a new surface with improved skid-resistance, and extends the life of the roadway. Slurry seal is part of the City's ongoing pavement maintenance program to help seal cracks and preserve the pavement of our streets.
