Slurry seal roadwork on Finn Hill

Slurry seal roadwork on Finn Hill

Kirkland’s 2017 slurry seal contractor has delayed by one week the day it will start closing more than 40 sections of residential streets in the Finn Hill, Norkirk and Houghton neighborhoods.
Telfer Technologies will be closing each of these road-sections for one business day while its crews treat it with slurry seal. Telfer Technologies will apply slurry seal to 26 Finn Hill street-sections on Aug. 11, 14, 15, 16. The contractor will treat 11 sections of Norkirk’s residential streets on Aug. 11 and 16. And in Central Houghton’s Sandhurst development, Telfer Technologies will be working Aug. 15 and 16.
Residents who live on or near those streets will be receiving an updated schedule in the mail early next week. However, Kirkland’s street maintenance staff is urging residents to regularly check www.kirklandwa.gov/streetpreservation for updates.
“The schedule is can change for a variety of reasons, such as rain, or even a forecast of rain,” said George Minassian, Kirkland’s streets engineer. “The fastest way to update residents with the new schedule is through the website.” Last week, a mistake by the printing and mailing shop led to Finn Hill residents receiving the slurry schedules for Houghton streets and Houghton residents receiving the slurry seal schedules for Finn Hill streets. The printing and mailing shop will re-send the updated postcards to the correct recipients, at its cost.

“The website had the correct schedules for each neighborhood,” Minassian said. “But if you didn’t check the website, you might have discarded the postcard with the assumption that your road wasn’t going to close, when, in fact, it is. We want to make sure residents are ready and prepared for slurry seal.”
