New Road Repair Projects Begin in and around Clairemont, La Jolla, Mira Mesa, Torrey Hills and University City

newly slurry sealed road in Torrey Hills

Roads are being repaired in neighborhoods across the City of San Diego as part of the Transportation Department’s ongoing Slurry Seal program. Starting today, City crews will continue resurfacing streets in and around Clairemont, La Jolla, Mira Mesa, Torrey Hills and University City over the next 3 weeks.

Preventing the deterioration of streets is vital to improving the overall condition of San Diego’s network of roads. It reduces the need for a more costly asphalt overlay and reconstruction for badly deteriorated streets. Information about different types of street repair can be found on the Transportation webpage.

Slurry seal is a cost-effective pavement preservation method consisting of asphalt emulsion, sand and rock. This mixture is applied to the street surface at an average thickness of a quarter inch and extends the life of already in-good-condition streets.

To prioritize street paving, the OCI is used in conjunction with other factors, such as traffic volume, road type, equity, climate resiliency, mobility, maintenance history, other construction projects, and available funding. Repairs are often grouped within a neighborhood to include streets in similar conditions or performed after other projects, such as pipeline replacement.
