Streets to receive pavement preservative made from recycled tires

Chandler Streets ProjectA pavement treatment made from recycled tire rubber will be applied to a number of Chandler streets in May.

The application of the penetrating sealant known as Tire Rubber Modified Surface Seal (TRMSS) helps extend the life of City streets by preserving pavement oils contained in the asphalt. The work will begin in mid-to-late May and take approximately one month to complete. Minor maintenance and crack sealing has been performed on the streets in preparation for the TRMSS application.

Streets involved in the project include:

- Arizona Avenue between Willis and Queen Creek roads
- Frye Road between Ellis and McQueen roads
- Shawnee Drive between Dobson Road and Central Drive
- Several streets located in the Sorrento and Crestview Court neighborhoods in west Chandler and The Tradition neighborhood in east Chandler

Maps showing all locations of the TRMSS and other pavement maintenance projects can be found by clicking on the Road Construction & Street Closures link on the Transportation page of the City's website,

In addition to the TRMSS project, sections of nine major City arterials and collector streets, including portions of Warner, Dobson, Pecos and McQueen roads, will receive a different type of coating called Slurry Seal to prolong their life. This work will begin May 12 and be completed by June.

The coating of asphalt emulsion mixed with aggregate will be applied to the following streets and require traffic shifts to accommodate the work. The affected streets include:

- Alma School Road between the Western Canal and Cheyenne Street
- Warner Road between the Loop 101 Price Freeway and Coronado Street
- 54th Street between Ray Road and Galveston Street
- Harrison Street between 54th and 56th streets
- Driftwood Avenue south of Chandler Boulevard
- Dobson Road between Frye Road and the Loop 202 Santan Freeway
- Pecos Road between Alma School and McQueen Roads
- McQueen Road between Pecos and Willis roads
- Cottonwood Street between Pecos and Willis roads

All streets will remain open to traffic during the work, but lane restrictions will occur. For more information, call 480-782-3500.
