Click here for schedule Annual Slurry Seal Project Portola Hills Zone G Schedule: The City of Lake Forest will be slurry sealing Portola Hills in the spring of 2021, 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 1,000 feet from any home impacted by that day's work. Slurry sealing will occur during the week, including trash-pick up days, when the work will take place after the trash is picked up. This project will be completed in four general phases. First, a crew will be in the streets crack sealing. This activity will place sealant in cracks that meet specific criteria, not necessarily every crack. Second, a pavement repair crew will complete spot repairs of the areas that have the greatest deterioration. These areas have already been identified by the City. Third, a crew will place slurry over the entire streets. Fourth, a crew will restripe pavement markings. 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 you via door hangers seven days prior to work, and again 24 hours prior. The City's goal is to provide good, quality roads for our residents. This will require the City to interrupt you normal routines while the project is under construction. The City is working to get you back to your normal routines as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience while the City improves your streets. Spring 2021
Surry Seal for Arterial Streets: Serrano, Ridge Route, and Toledo - Week One (PDF)

Week Two (PDF)

Week Three (PDF)
The Pavement Management Program identified Serrano Road from Toledo Way to El Toro Road, Ridge Route Drive from Trabuco Road to dead end west of Rockfield, and Toledo Way from Bake Parkway to El Toro Road as being the next roads due for repair. The project would also repair approximately 18,000 square feet of deteriorated pavement on Trabuco Road north of Peachwood. In addition to replacing all existing traffic striping, markings, and legends, the proposed project would use approximately 1,450 extra-long tons of type II slurry to seal the existing pavement surface. The project would remove and replace approximately 160,000 square feet of damaged sections of pavement. Upon approval of the award of the contract, staff anticipates that construction would begin on the project in mid-May 2020. The construction contract specifies 50 working days with the work anticipated to be complete in July 2020. July 2020
