Montrose, CO — Following recent crack sealing and asphalt patching throughout the Fox Park, Fox Hills, and American Village subdivisions, contractors hired by the City of Montrose’s Public Works are scheduled to begin slurry sealing roadways beginning Monday, July 12.
Slurry seal is a type of surface treatment in which a small aggregate is suspended in an oil/water emulsion. As the emulsion cures, it creates a smooth, black seal on top of the asphalt pavement. Slurry seals are best used on roads that are still in good condition, prior to any major failures.
The seal helps prevent the roadway from deteriorating, extending the life of the asphalt, and preventing more costly repairs in the future. The curing period typically takes four to five hours. During this period, cars will not be permitted to drive on the freshly placed slurry.
Contractors will begin work at 7 a.m. each day. If your road is scheduled to be slurry sealed and has "No Parking" signs along the road, please be prepared for the road to be closed until the slurry has cured.
Should you need to leave your home after 7 a.m., please prepare for the closure and relocate your vehicle to a street that does not have "No Parking" signs prior to the start of the slurry seal process. The construction schedule is as follows:• Monday, July 12:
Leah Lane, David Lane, Estates Drive, American Way, Election Way, and Silver Fox Drive.• Tuesday, July 13:
Kia Lane (north of Meadows Pkwy), Stan Drive, Freedom Way, W. Fox Park Street, West Drive, and West Court. • Wednesday, July 14:
Biron Road, Meadows Parkway (between 6700 Rd and Sara E Lane), E Fox Park Street, Valley Way, Constitution Loop. • Thursday, July 15:
Sara E Lane, Natalia Way, Kia Lane (south of Meadows Pkwy), Mead Lane (between Meadows Pkwy and Patriot Ct) and Republic Avenue. • Friday, July 16:
Meadows Parkway (between 6700 Rd and Stan Dr), Patriot Court, Mead Lane (east of Patriot Ct), and Hill Street (south of American Way). • Saturday, July 17:
