The goal of the Operations Department of the City of Herriman is to build and maintain hard street surfaces, including travel lanes, bike lanes, medians, curbs, gutters, and sidewalks; to provide adequate safe traffic controls and street lighting; remove debris and snow from travel surfaces.
What is Slurry Seal and Why Does the City do it?
Slurry Seal – Pavement Surface Treatment:
Slurry seal is a cold mix paving system that can remedy a broad range of problems on streets, airfields, parking lots, and driveways. Think of Slurry Seal as an Industrial Grade Asphalt Surfacing. The principal materials used to create slurry are aggregate, asphalt emulsion, and fillers which are mixed together according to a laboratory’s mix design formula. Water is also added for workability.
Slurry Seal Advantages:
As the most versatile of any Pavement Surface Treatment System, Slurry Seal is also a unique bituminous mixture that can be used to meet the demands of a variably textured surface filling cracks and voids, sealing the surface weather tight, and providing color and texture delineation in a single pass.
Slurry Seal is economical to install and highly cost effective to use.
Correcting & Preventing Problems
Existing distresses in older pavements, surface cracking, raveling, loss of matrix, increased water and air permeability and lack of friction due to flushing or aggregate polishing can be corrected through a slurry application. Waterproofing is also achieved, preventing further deterioration. An all-weather, long lasting surface is created that offers skid resistance and improved handling characteristics for drivers.
With one simple application, existing pavement receives a new wearing surface of uniform black color or texture. Enhanced appearance means increased property value.
With approximately 1800 streetlights to maintain, we appreciate your help in finding lights that are out or are malfunctioning. You can send an e-mail or call the City office. We ask for your name and phone number in case we have questions and need to follow up with you.
The Stormwater Division is committed to safely delivering stormwater to drainage outfalls and minimizing any potential flooding through aggressive cleaning and maintenance of the storm drain system. The Stormwater system consists of all gutters, grates, detention ponds, storm inlets, pipes, culverts and any drainage system used to collect rainwater and snowmelt and deliver it to appropriate streams in order to prevent flooding and property damage throughout the city. State and federal EPA laws require all cities to collect storm runoff and minimize the pollution it carries downstream. All water in Utah is publically owned by the state.
The City’s operational goal is to sweep every road in the City twice a year. Heavily traveled arterial streets are normally swept more often, and special problem streets are maintained more often as needed.
City streets will normally be plowed to provide better access to the higher traveled streets first. Special attention is given to those higher traveled (collector) streets with hills and difficult intersections. Next, secondary streets are cleared and last; subdivisions streets are plowed with special smaller trucks. Cul-de-sacs and dead-end streets are plowed at this time.
