The City of San Diego will be doing major repairs and upgrades to streets throughout La Jolla. The work which began earlier this month continues the week of April 25.
While no one likes street closures and traffic disruptions, the benefits far outway the temporary inconvenience. Over the past few weeks, repairs have been done to potholes, street cuts, cracks and uneven surfaces. The next step is slurry seal which is a pavement preservation method consisting of asphalt emulsion, sand, and rock. This is applied to the street surface at an average thickness of ¼ of an inch. This cost-effective maintenance treatment extends the life of streets already in good condition.
Slurry seal is a cost-effective, pavement preservation method consisting of asphalt emulsion, sand and rock. This mixture is applied to the street surface at an average thickness of a quarter inch and extends the life of streets that are already in good condition. Slurry seal is often completed in phases over a period of several days or weeks. It provides a durable surface, addresses existing surface distress on streets and is a vital program in maintaining the City of San Diego’s more than 2,800 miles of roadway.
Preventing the deterioration of streets is key to improving the overall condition of San Diego’s network of streets and reduces the need for more costly asphalt overlay and reconstruction required for badly deteriorated streets.
- Slurry Seal requires only a few hours to dry before traffic can drive over it but it takes 24 to 48 hours to cure completely.
- Two coats of slurry seal will be applied in The Village. There is no definite schedule for the second coat.
- Re-striping will occur approximately two weeks following the second coat.
Here are the detailed Street by Street La Jolla Village Slurry Seal Schedules as provided by the City. Keep in mind weather may interfere with the schedule:
