Bullhead City, AZ., September 30, 2022- The City of Bullhead City will be closing the Colorado River Nature Center next week, Monday, October 3, through Friday, October 7, for scheduled slurry maintenance. McCormick Construction will begin applying a fog seal to the road through the Colorado River Nature Center at 6 a.m. Monday morning. Bullhead City Street Maintenance crews will apply 2 lifts of slurry to the road through the rest of the week ending Friday.

The scheduled maintenance marks the first week of the 2022/2023 season of the City Street Maintenance Program (CSMP). The CSMP is an annual maintenance program to resurface and repair 20-30% of the City’s roadways each year, and 100% of the City’s roadways every 5 years. The city’s primary method of maintaining streets is through applying slurry or micro surface treatments, which add a small amount of structure and seven to ten years of life to the pavement, as well as smoothing the road’s surface. Less often, the City will hire contractors to repave, resurface, or crack seal roads within city limits. By resurfacing every city roadway every 5 years, with a treatment that extends life by more than 5 years, the CSMP keeps the City’s roads intact indefinitely.

In addition to the slurry maintenance schedule for the Colorado River Nature Center, City Street Maintenance Crews will be applying slurry treatments to Rolling Hills Rd and Merced Dr beginning the week of October 3. The roads will be closed while maintenance is underway. The City asks residents living in the area to move vehicles off the road prior to work beginning in the early mornings. Streets will be closed while crews apply slurry treatments and for four to six hours after while treatment sets.

The most up to date information about the City Street Maintenance Program can always be found on the City’s website at bullheadcity.com/csmp. Residents can visit the website to see if their street is scheduled for maintenance in the 2022/2023 season of CSMP, as well as which streets are scheduled for maintenance next week.
