Annual Slurry Seal Project
The slurry seal contractor will be performing crack sealing in Zone G (Portola Hills) next week. Crack Sealing will require posting of "No Parking" signs, however, the impact to traffic in the neighborhoods should be minimal.
Here is the link for the schedule for crack sealing for of June 1, 2021.
The contractor will be doing asphalt repairs at the intersection of Trabuco and Bake Parkway on Saturday April 24, 2021.
The City of Lake Forest is actively slurry sealing Zones C and G, to ensure a safe, smooth roadway surface and make certain the roadways last as long as possible. The schedule allows for on-street parking within approximately 1,000 feet from any home impacted by that day's work. Slurry sealing will occur during the week. The work is scheduled to not impact trash-pick up days, if trash pickup day cannot be avoided the residents will be notified in advance, but it is not anticipated at this time.
This project will be completed in four general phases:
Throughout the process there will be various parking restriction and traffic control signs, please adhere to all posted signage. Trash will be picked up on the normal pickup schedule. The contractor, will notify residents prior to the slurry work that requires a single day street closure via door hangers seven days prior to work, and again 24 hours prior.
The City maintains approximately 200 miles of roadway. Slurry seal provides a protective coating to reduce wear and prevent water from seeping into the roadway, which can cause potholes. The City's goal is to provide good, quality roads for our residents. This will require the City to interrupt residents’ normal routines, while the project is under construction. The City is working to get residents back to their normal routines as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience while the City improves your streets.
