Citywide Slurry Seal Work Nearly Complete


Coronado, CA (May 8, 2013) - Coronado's annual slurry seal project to protect and extend the life of the City's roadways, which began last week, is nearly complete. As soon as the slurry seal sets, estimated at up to 10 days, the striping will be completed.

This year, approximately 1.1 million square feet of City streets received a slurry seal surface treatment. The slurry seal is a thin mixture of fine sand, water and emulsified asphalt and is used to rejuvenate or revitalize old surfaces, improve traction, and help improve road visibility at night.

The following two photos are from last year's slurry sealing:






The following streets and parking lots will receive a slurry seal this year:

Street

From/To

Sixth Street

Glorietta Boulevard to Coronado Avenue

Eighth Street

Adella Avenue to Coronado Avenue

Ninth Street

Adella Avenue to Alameda Boulevard

Ocean Boulevard

Orange Avenue to NASNI (Gate 5)

Palm Avenue

Third Street to Alameda Boulevard

Parking Lots

Southeast corner of Seventh Street and D Avenue

Please note that the schedule is subject to change if any inclement weather occurs during the project. If a street is rescheduled, the table shown above will be adjusted as needed. Please check back here if your street's slurry seal is in question due to weather. The contractor will deliver an informational flyer to affected residences and businesses a minimum of three days prior to construction commencing on that street. The City asks drivers to observe all "No Parking" signs and drive carefully through the construction areas.

EDCO is aware of this construction schedule and will pick up the trash before construction begins on that day. If your trash collection day is the same day your street will be slurry sealed, please have your trash cans out by 6:00 am.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience the construction may cause. Any questions about the project can be directed to the City's Engineering and Project Development Department at (619) 522-7383.
