Santa Clarita’s annual slurry seal and overlay road preservation and rehabilitation operation, dubbed the Road Rehab Program, will begin by the end of June, city officials announced Wednesday.

The Road Rehab Program consists of slurry seal and overlay treatments on selected roadways citywide.

Slurry seal is a coating treatment designed to preserve and extend the life of the road. The overlay includes removal and replacement of existing pavement that has extensive damage, where the slurry seal will no longer be adequate.

On Tuesday, June 11, the Santa Clarita City Council approved a contract with VSS International, Inc. to begin the slurry seal portion of this year’s Road Rehab project. Slurry seal maintenance will be performed on arterial and neighborhood streets, including Railroad Avenue from Newhall Avenue to 15th Street.

The overlay portion of this year’s Road Rehab project will be announced at the regular City Council meeting on June 25 and will consist of overlay treatments for selected arterial and neighborhood streets throughout the City.

Road Rehab will continue through the summer months and residents are asked to be aware of construction notification signs on residential and arterial streets, and to carefully follow altered traffic patterns and roadway restrictions.

All cars in the “No Parking” zone during posted construction times will be towed.

The city’s Road Rehab website is located at santa-clarita.com/RoadRehab and features frequently asked questions and tips for residents to ensure resurfacing goes quickly and efficiently.

An interactive map and full list of streets identified for Road Rehab in 2019 will soon be made available on the website. Residents will be able to navigate the list of streets and see the locations, approximate dates of proposed work and whether slurry seal or overlay will be administered.

Door hangers and handbills will be distributed to homes that will be directly affected throughout the course of the project, including dates and approximate construction hours.

Construction will occur Monday through Friday. Work on residential streets will occur during daytime hours to cause the least disruption to residents. Work on arterial streets may occur during daytime hours or overnight, to avoid major traffic impacts.

For the latest updates, including last-minute changes in scheduling, please follow the hashtag #SCRoadRehab on Twitter.

The city of Santa Clarita appreciates the community’s cooperation and support and will work hard to minimize inconveniences.

Additional instructions and Road Rehab information, including the interactive map, can be found at santa-clarita.com/RoadRehab. For any questions or concerns, residents may contact the project hotline at (661) 290-2291.

    Road rehab? Have the roads been bad, and need to be sent to a rehab facility?

    Or are you just talking about the thinned-out tar surfacing that makes the road look new even though it doesn’t actually change any part of the road surface’s physical condition?

    Shiny black road “sealing” of surfaces does not mean the road is sealed, repaired, or otherwise renewed. It just puts off the necessary physical resurfacing of asphalt cement roadbeds. It slows down the weathering due to sun and rain, but it doesn’t extend the life of the surface for more than a few years. It also doesn’t fix road damage due to physical impacts by heavy vehicle travel, nor does it do anything to affect poorly designed roadbeds with underground artesian water flows that force up the pavement in wet years, and then subsides and cracks the asphalt in dry years.

    But thanks again for taking such good care of our roads!

    This is a great news! Hope they can hire a good paving company for repairing those roads.
