Streets in the Bridle Trails and South Rose Hill neighborhoods, which were originally scheduled for slurry seal on Aug. 14, are now scheduled for slurry seal on Aug. 21.

Kirkland’s slurry seal contractor made this decision to ensure that residents in those neighborhoods would have access to their roads when they returned from work in the evening. Access to those roads would have been jeopardized by the air’s high humidity, which was causing the slurry seal to dry much slower than normal. Blackline, Incorporated, doesn’t restore access to roads it has slurry sealed until the slurry seal is dry.

Blackline did, however, finish applying slurry seal Aug. 14 to each of the eight street sections it had planned for the day in the Market and Norkirk neighborhoods.

This is the third weather-induced schedule change.

The street sections that will now be closed for slurry seal on Aug. 21 are:

Northeast 75th Street, from 127th Avenue Northeast to 130th Avenue Northeast

130th Avenue Northeast, from Northeast 73rd State to Northeast 75th State

Northeast 74th State, from 130th Avenue Northeast to the east end ofthe cul de sac

129th Avenue Northeast, from Northeast 75th State to the south end ofthe cul de sac

Northeast 66th State, from 122nd Avenue Northeast to 123rd Avenue Northeast

Northeast 67th State, from 122 Avenue Northeast to 123rd Avenue Northeast

123rd Avenue Northeast, from Northeast 66th State to Northeast 67th State
