Slurry Seal Map

Slurry Seal Work Schedule for Each Street

Traffic Impacts: In general, Work hours are from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm but lane closures or complete road closures will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with modified hours to accommodate pick-up and drop-off times near schools. Emergency vehicles will always be allowed to proceed through the work site. All lanes of traffic will be restored no later than 5 p.m. each day. Scheduled garbage and & recycling pickups will not be disrupted.

For Residents on Project Streets

VSS International, the City’s contractor, has delivered notifications that contain additional information, including schedule, access impacts to your driveway and street, and contact information.   You will also see ‘No Parking’ signs posted on barricades in front of or near your home within 72 hours before work begins. Please pay close attention to these signs and consider parking your vehicle on adjoining streets on the day of the resurfacing work as access to and from your driveway will be limited during the workday.

Manila Ave Storm Drain Repair project, C5036.9

Construction of the Manila Avenue Storm Drain Repair Project, No. C5036.9, is scheduled to begin in mid August 2022. The City has contracted with FJ&I Engineering, Inc. to complete the work. Portions of the existing shallow storm drain crossing Manila Avenue near the Ohlone Trail have collapsed causing a reduction in the capacity to the storm drain system for the area, along with undermining of the roadway.  The project will repair and upgrade the existing capacity and strength of the existing storm drain system, as well as repair impacted portions of the roadway. For more information, please contact the City’s consulting project manager, Gerardo Avila, at

Arlington Boulevard Guardrail Replacement Project, N0. C3081.A 

Construction of the Arlington Boulevard Guardrail Replacement Project, N0. C3081.A is scheduled to begin in late August 2022. The City has contracted with Dirt and Aggregate Interchange Inc. to complete the work. The guardrail systems on Arlington Boulevard have been severely damaged by vehicle collisions at two locations: 1) south of Brewster Drive (south leg) and 2) south of Cutting Boulevard. Arlington Boulevard has a considerable curve at both locations and the guardrail systems are necessary to prevent out-of-control vehicles from careening over the embankment at the edge of the roadway. The project will replace guardrail segments at both locations.  For more information, please contact the City’s Acting Engineering Manager, Roland Lambert, at
