The Arizona Chapter AGC Pavement Preservation guides are collections of best practices and recommendations for the state of Arizona. Microsurfacing and Slurry Seals are important pavement preservation tools, and when constructed properly they increase the life of a pavement. Following these guidelines and using a reputable AGC member contractor will also contribute to the overall success of the project.
There will be instances where conditions or materials dictate the need to deviate from these guides. It is important that contractors, suppliers, and agencies work together and use common sense to modify these recommendations as needed.
The Arizona Chapter of the Associated General Contractor’s Pavement Preservation committee developed the guidelines below to identify “best practices” to be used during the application of microsurfacing and slurry seals.
