CONE ZONE ALERT: FY 2023-2024 Spring Rubberized Emulsion Aggregate Slurry (REAS) Projects


The City Council of Cathedral City awarded a construction contract to Petrochem Materials Innovation, LLC. (PMI) in the amount of $1,114,598.46 for the construction of the FY 2023-2024 Spring Rubberized Emulsion Aggregate Slurry (REAS) Projects. REAS is used as the primary pavement maintenance surface treatment to preserve the asphalt on public streets. This treatment has proven to be effective due to its durability, longevity, and the added benefit of dampening roadway tire noise.

Starting April 29, 2024, through June 2024, PMI will be applying REAS in the neighborhoods listed below:

  • Panorama Neighborhood
  • Sunny Lane Neighborhood
  • Victoria Drive Neighborhood

The construction hours will be from 6:00AM to 7:00PM, Monday through Friday.

For us to complete these projects, we must work together. If you live in one of the areas where this work is scheduled, you will be inconvenienced when construction is underway on your street. We will limit your inconvenience the best we can. There will be a period and/or periods of time that you will not be able to drive on your street. Street signage and door hangers will be placed seventy-two (72) hours in advance of all work so that you are notified of upcoming work, parking, and street access limitations.

  • WARNING: At times there will be dirt roadways, noise, vibration, smell and/or workers along your frontages within the right of way. In addition, your street parking may be limited, access to your street and/or driveway may be impaired. For the contractor to complete the roadway work, these instances will predictably occur.
  • TEAMWORK: This is part of the roadway work that you, as the recipient of the newly rehabilitated street, will have to participate in. Thus, I am asking that you be part of the team and understand the inconveniences, be patient and look forward to a newly rehabilitated street.
  • EMERGENCY ACCESS: The contractor and the City’s First Responders (Police and Fire) will always work hand in hand to provide emergency access.

Please be extra diligent in construction zones, observe the signs, drive within the posted speed limits and overall, be safe. The City appreciates your cooperation and patience during the construction of this project.
