RESURFACING WORK 2016

Memo: December 5, 2016 Update & FAQ

UPDATE ON RESURFACING WORK IN LAND PARK AND CURTIS PARK

As it has been reported, The City of Sacramento’s contractor, Valley Slurry Seal International (VSS International), has been working in the Land Park, Curtis Park, and Little Pocket areas resurfacing existing roadways. Several claims have been filed in Land Park for wet slurry materials adhering to vehicles. We apologize for this situation, and want to assure residents that we are working closely with VSS International to quickly address these issues. 

Slurry seal and cape seal are two of the most cost effective and environmentally friendly techniques available to maintain the City’s streets.  VSS International, Inc. has a long history of successfully applying these products in the City of Sacramento. These techniques can have some weather limitations and the unusually wet weather experienced in October has delayed this work, which was originally scheduled to be complete by early November.   

For residents affected by this situation, VSS International is making arrangements with a local automotive detailing service to remove asphalt from affected vehicles. Residents are encouraged to file a claim with VSS International using the following process:

  1. Contact Valley Slurry Seal International at 916-373-1500 to request a claims form.

  2. Submit a completed claims form via email, with photos of the vehicle damage, and a description of the location and time at which the damage occurred to Victri Wackford of VSS International at victri.wackford@slurry.com

  3. Upon verification of claim, VSS International will arrange for a mobile automotive detailing service to remove material from affected vehicles as necessary at no cost to the resident.

  4. Residents who have already arranged for automotive detailing in response to such issues may still file a claim and submit a receipt for reimbursement once the claim is verified.

The City of Sacramento is working diligently with VSS International to complete resurfacing in locations that cannot be delayed until spring. The remainder of the slurry sealing work will then be delayed until warmer weather to avoid any additional impacts to residents. We apologize for any hardship our project has caused and are committed to making sure that issues are resolved in a timely fashion.
