Summer Paving 2020


Paving & Slurry Seal Work 

The 2020 Summer Paving Project is underway.


Road Work AheadThe Street Maintenance Fee supports a yearly program for street maintenance in Tigard. The road system is one of the City of Tigard’s biggest investments. The purpose of the Pavement Management Program is to keep our roads in the best condition possible. Most of the paving is done in July and August because this is when we get the best weather for paving.

Tigard typically uses two types of pavement treatments: 1) slurry seals on streets that have lower traffic volumes and are in relatively good condition; and 2) pavement overlays on busy streets and on roads with severe cracks and potholes to restore the road to good pavement condition.

Slurry Seal - Summer 2020

Application: 17.5 miles of residential streets
Location: Near McDonald Street and Durham Road
Impact: Roadways will be closed from 7:30am to 5pm on the day they are scheduled for slurry.  No parking or driving on the roadway that day.Example - Slurry Seal Before and After

Cost: $.30 per square foot

In the months before the slurry seal treatment, some minor patching, street cleaning, crack sealing and other work is done to prepare the street for surface treatment.

  • Dig outs – The Public Works Streets Division prepares streets by saw cutting a square shape of damaged roadway and then replacing the pavement with new asphalt. Travel and parking impacts are minimal. [Complete for 2020]
  • Crack Seal – Streets are impacted for one day, and homes are accessible during this work. Street parking is prohibited during work hours on the day crack sealing is scheduled on each street. Please note that slow speeds are required and delays are possible.
  • Streets are closed for one day for a slurry seal application. Roadways will be closed from 7:30am to 5pm on the day they are scheduled for slurry. No parking or driving on the roadway that day. When the slurry seal is applied, it looks like chocolate syrup, but is much stickier and messier. Slurry seal takes several hours to dry. During that time, motorists, pedestrians and pets must stay out of the slurry seal so as not to ruin the application and to avoid getting slurry seal on vehicles, shoes and paws.
A few weeks after the treatment is applied crews will perform an inspection, sweep up loose gravel, make necessary surface repairs and replace any pavement markings.

Pavement Overlay - Summer 2020 

Application: Durham Road including 16 pedestrian ramps
Printable Map: View the overview map for 2020 
Cost: $3.00 per square foot
Impact: Expect traffic delays, detours and construction noise.

  • Pedestrian Ramps - As required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, the city typically retrofits the curb ramps at each corner to make it easier for people in wheelchairs (and strollers and other wheeled devices) to use the sidewalks.
  • Overlay - This work includes saw cutting and grinding out existing travel lanes (1-2") and replacing the pavement with new asphalt. This work is known as "grind and inlay" and provides structural strength to the roadway.
  • A few weeks after the overlay is complete, crews will perform an inspection and replace any pavement markings.
  • Work starts in early July to rebuild curb ramps along the pavement area.
  • Paving begins in late-July
  • On-street parking will be prohibited in the work zone.
