El Mirage Annual Pavement Preservation
El Mirage is committed to a forward-thinking approach to managing asphalt pavement in the city. Beginning October 24th, residential streets will have an advanced asphalt preservation treatment installed that is designed to mitigate the deterioration of the asphalt pavement. The damage that the environment has done to the pavement already can’t be reversed but the deterioration can be limited. Doing so lowers costs over time and prolongs the life of the streets which are a critical component of the city’s infrastructure.

El Mirage’s city council and management have established a long-term strategy that will cost-effectively preserve the city’s asphalt pavement assets. When it comes to preserving asphalt pavements, there are many options to consider. There are numerous products a city can put on a roadway that will turn a pavement black in color, but that doesn’t always mean the life of the roadways are being extended. After careful consideration of available options, the High Density Mineral Bond (also known as HA5) was selected as the primary surface treatment to extend the life of the city’s residential roadways.

Why is My Road Closing?
Roads in your subdivision are having a pavement preservation treatment installed that will help significantly extend the life of asphalt streets. The benefits of properly maintained streets include higher property values, a smoother/safer ride, and reduced costs to the community by prolonging the need for replacement.

What if my car is parked on a road that is closed?
Work will commence at 7:00 AM and the streets being treated will be closed for approximately 24 hours. A tow truck will be called for any cars parked on the streets scheduled to be treated that day. Towing expenses will be the owner’s responsibility.

WHAT IF I DRIVE ON THE ROAD WHILE CLOSED?
You will be liable for damage to your vehicle and to repair the area of road you have driven on. Minimum repair cost is $600, maximum $3,000, to repair the installed surface treatment. In the event of a life threatening emergency, emergency vehicles will not be stopped from driving on the treated surface.

SPRINKLERS MUST BE TURNED OFF

Water may damage the installation of the surface treatment. Please do not have sprinklers set to come on 24 hours before the road closure, during the road closure, or 24 hours after the road closure. Damage due to sprinklers will result in the same repair cost of $600 minimum, $3,000 maximum, to repair the installed surface treatment.

IF WEATHER CAUSES A HALT TO THE PROJECT, YOUR STREET MAY BE REQUIRED TO BE CLOSED ANOTHER DAY. IF THIS HAPPENS, YOU WILL RECEIVE ANOTHER NOTIFICATION.
