More than a dozen road resurfacing projects in Roseburg are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.

The City of Roseburg Public Works Department will be performing maintenance work on more than a dozen streets on Monday and Tuesday. Workers will be applying slurry seals to the following street sections in Roseburg, weather permitting.

In total, just under 2 miles of city streets will receive slurry seal treatment.

Advanced notice will be given to residents prior to the work beginning. Residents, who normally park their vehicles on these streets will need to must remove them from the street so that crews can apply the slurry seals. Any vehicles left on the above-mentioned streets after the scheduled start date will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Slurry seals are applied to help preserve and protect the underlying pavement structure and provide a new driving surface.

“Essentially, you can think of a slurry seal as sunscreen for asphalt,” Public Works Director Brice Perkins said in a press release. “This helps protect the pavement and provide a smooth surface for driving. Applying slurry seals also helps us achieve our goal of providing quality public infrastructure at the lowest life cycle cost.”
