SLURRY SEAL

The results are reported of two inspections of slurry seal projects in Ohio. The first was conducted to observe the condition and evaluate the performance of Slurry Seal on highway shoulders. Both inside and outside sealed shoulders were inspected after 4 winter seasons. The overall condition of the seal was considered at least as good as the results obtained with chip and seal and is expected to continue functioning without major maintenance. The method does not result in waste of aggregate, and surface drainage characteristics were good. The second inspection reports on the relatively new use of slurry seal on Ohio highways. Comments are made on the equipment and materials used, the work itself, field observations, and method of performance. The maintenance of quality control is covered, and the maintenance of traffic throught the project is described.
