(PCI of 77 or greater)

Slurry seal is a surface treatment designed to extend the life of asphalt pavements in good condition by providing skid resistance, restricting moisture intrusion, protecting the structure from further oxidation and raveling, and restoring a uniform black appearance. Slurry seal boasts quick construction times and reasonable disruption to the traveling public.
