In 2019 the City of Ridgecrest Streets Division purchased a slurry machine.
Slurry is a coating consisting of a mixture of very fine aggregates, asphalt binder, and water. This coating is applied to a street to increase the life of the pavement.
The first slurry work put down by a City crew was in the Spring of 2019. The crew completed resurfacing the following streets.
This was 733,000 square feet or 3.8 center-line miles of roadway (3% of the City’s streets).
In the Fall 2019 the crew completed resurfacing the following streets.
This was 716,000 square feet or 3 center-line miles of roadway (2.4% of the City’s streets).
In the Spring of 2020 the crew proposed to complete the following streets.
This is 656,000 Square feet or 3.5 center-line miles of roadway (2.8% of the City’s streets).
Overall, in three seasons (1.5 years) the Streets Crew has completed 10.3 center-line miles of resurfacing using slurry seal. This is approximately 8.2% of the City’s 126 center-line miles.
