Slurry and Crack Seal Program

Every year, the Public Works Department works with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) to provide funding for the City’s Slurry and Crack Seal Program for maintenance on various streets within Boulder City. Due to weather delays, the 2017-18 program was unable to begin construction and has been combined with the 2018-19 program. The maintenance areas are depicted in the exhibits below for a total estimated maintenance area of 178,000 square yards. Work began on December 17 and the project will last approximately three and a half months.
