“Street maintenance crews switch to night work during the warmer months of spring and fall to allow the slurry to set quicker in the milder temperatures,” said Bullhead Public Information Officer Mackenzie Covert. “Working at night is also ideal for arterial streets and roadways that are heavily driven during the daytime, and our crews are taking advantage of that to provide maintenance on these heavily driven streets with as little impact on traffic as possible.”

The City Street Maintenance Program is an annual project to treat more than 20% of the City’s roadway with slurry or microsurface each year. The program preserves and improves city roadways, extending their life for many years and saving costs.
