Slurry seal project to begin Monday, Oct. 18

The City of Indio will apply new slurry and striping on roads throughout the City from October 18 to November 19 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Residents and motorists should expect travel delays, are encouraged to use alternate routes, and should observe all construction signs and obey road crews. Access for emergency vehicles will be unaffected.

The current project includes the Circle, Arcus, Green, Showcase, Aquarius, El Cid, Swingle, Lido Palms and East Jewel neighborhoods.

“Asphalt roadways selected for slurry seal maintenance usually have low to medium distress and where a slurry seal application will help preserve the life of the asphalt,” added Street Maintenance Supervisor Terry Cechin. “Slurry also provides a rich black surface color that improves aesthetics.”

This project is part of the City’s street maintenance program to restore the appearance of the street pavement, while extending its service life and minimizing further deterioration. The work involves a slurry seal application to the asphalt surface as well as striping the new asphalt surface.

Watch for notices with detailed instructions from the City at least 72 hours ahead of scheduled work, which may include limited street parking.

$3 million is budgeted for this project, which is funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during the construction of the improvements. Please direct any questions to City of Indio, c/o Terry Cechin at (760) 625-1802.
