VACAVILLE — The city will begin a slurry seal project the last week of July that will cover more than 30 miles of streets in the northeast area of Vacaville.
The project, after a five-year hiatus due to budget constraints, will start again and includes the areas bounded by Orange Drive to the north, Leisure Town Road to the east, Marshall Road to the south and Nut Tree Road to the west. Vanden Road from Marshall Road to Alamo Drive will also receive slurry seal.
Slurry seal is restricted to lower-volume streets such as residential and minor collectors, as such Orange Drive, Leisure Town Road, Elmira Road, Ulatis Drive, Marshall Road, Alamo Drive and Nut Tree Road will not be slurry sealed.
About a week before the slurry seal operations begin, the contractor will place a rubberized asphalt joint sealant over the larger cracks to help seal the asphalt surface. There will be no street closures during this process.
However, residents will be notified 72 hours before the slurry seal process begins, with a door hanger. Streets or portions of streets slated for slurry seal will be closed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the scheduled date.
The project will take approximately 45 working days to complete. Emergency vehicles will have access.
Any questions can be directed to the city’s Public Work Department at 449-5170.
