Several Kirkland streets set for resurfacing; expect road closures
August 23, 2011 · 12:53 PM
The City of Kirkland, along with its contractor, Blackline Inc., will be resurfacing several streets in Kirkland with slurry seal. Slurry seal is a thick cold liquid mixture of asphalt and fine rock (pre-mixed) applied to the existing asphalt surface.
Construction is scheduled to begin Aug. 30 and is estimated to be complete within one week.Typical hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Many factors (including weather) could influence the actual days the work is being done. Rain, or even the threat of rain, will postpone the slurry seal application.
The process also requires road closures for one day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Notices will be distributed to all adjacent residents and businesses within 24 hours prior to road closure. No one will be allowed to drive in or out of their driveway or on the street after 8 a.m., at which time the road will be closed to all traffic.
The road will remain closed until the slurry seal has been placed and had time to dry thoroughly (which can take anywhere from four to six hours). All roads are scheduled to open by 4 p.m. the same day.
