5th District Streets to Be Repaired or Slurry Sealed

Street to be repaved: Harvey Way

Street to be slurried: Rosina

I am pleased to announce that street repair and slurry sealing is underway on a number of residential streets in the 5th district. This marks the first time since I took office in 2006 that the City has funded slurry sealing of streets.

Slurry sealing is like car wax: it is used to protect streets that are in good condition from deteriorating. The slurry seal which is made from emulsified asphalt (a mixture made from oil and fine sand aggregate) is typically applied to a street once every 7 to 8 years.
The Public Works Department carefully reviewed the streets in the City and recommended that the following streets in the 5th be slurried:

Torin from Claremore to Lama
Claremore from Spring to Cramer
Cramer from Armourdale to Julian
Armourdale from Cramer to Garner
Julian from Garner to Rosina
Rosina from Claremore to Marna
Claremore from Rosina to Wardlow

The following streets because of their serious condition are being repaved:
Centralia from Whitewood to Bellflower
Harvey Way from Faculty to Clark
Faculty from Carson to Harvey
Arbor Road from Lakewood Blvd to Bellflower Blvd.

The total funding for these projects: $1.1 million.

As more funds become available for street repair, more streets will be repaved or slurried in the 5th Council district.

Should you have any questions, as always, feel free to contact me:
