City to commence spring slurry seal program

The City’s next application of slurry seal begins Thursday, March 30, and will impact several major roadways in addition to a handful of area neighborhoods.

The City’s Public Works department administers the slurry seal program, designed to add at least five years of life to the streets on which it is applied. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with some weekend work to minimize the impact to busier streets.

Slurry seal is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, water, sand and concrete. It provides a cost-effective new wearing surface.

The City of Yuma Public Works Crews have been working in these areas fixing potholes, crack sealing, grinding and patch work to prepare for this project.

Main arteries and subdivisions have been broken up to help minimize inconveniences.

City employees will serve as the inspectors for the contractor applying the slurry seal.

A 24-hour advance notice will be passed out by the contractor prior to working on your street. Streets will reopen the same day by 5 p.m. Please pass this information to all concerned parties and for any questions or concerns please call Public Works at 928-373-4500.
