Slurry Seal Project -- Driving down Concannon Boulevard, North Mines Road, Charlotte Way, Olivina Avenue and North Livermore Avenue might take a bit longer in the weeks ahead due to the annual slurry seal project.  Slurry seal is a protective street coating that extends pavement life by protecting the undersurface from wear, tear, aging and weather.  Work on this project begins in mid-September and should end around the first week of November.  Questions?  Call the City's Engineering Department at 925-960-4500.
