There is a saying in Michigan, "We have two seasons, winter and construction." Now, even though our winters aren't nearly as lengthy or intense, some seasons are just better for the overall effectiveness when it comes to construction. The city of Killeen, Texas will be shutting down several roads over the coming days to slurry seal the surfaces.

What is slurry seal?

It's a mixture of materials that helps with filling potholes and other damage, while also lengthening the life of the road and improving traction.
