International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) Names Preservation Performance Winner


During the 62nd Annual Convention of the International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA), held February 19-23 in Palm Harbor, Florida, ISSA named the Regional Municipality of York and The Miller Group as the recipients for the 2024 ISSA Preservation Performance Award.

The ISSA Preservation Performance Award was established to award both an owner or agency and engineering firm that specified and managed the project and the member contractor for their work. This award recognizes and honors pavement preservation projects that prove the long-time performance and network enhancement of pavement preservation.

Nominated by The Miller Group, the Regional Municipality of York in Ontario, has preserved Weston Road for the last 14 years by using a high-performance double chip seal. The construction cost was $210,410 and maintenance and repair costs from 2012 to 2023 were roughly $5,500. This project has had minor maintenance to address localized cracking. There has not been major rehabilitation or repairs since construction.

Due to increased truck traffic since 2021, there has been slight rutting and fatigue cracking and there are plans for future rehabilitation. Additionally, due to the success of Weston Road, the Region has completed several other roads using this preservation approach which all have similar or better performance. Lastly, the Region has successfully added this tool to their toolbox, benefiting their taxpayers and improving their asset management.

Founded in 1963, the International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) is a nonprofit association dedicated to the interests, education and success of slurry and micro surfacing, chip sealing and crack treatment professionals and corporations around the world.
