Summary:
The Mackinac Bridge Authority is pleased that slurry seal did what it was supposed to, seal the small cracks in the as
asphalt pavement which prevented seepage of water down to the steel in the concrete deck below.  As an additional
benefit they obtained better skid resistance.  Strawser Slurry Seal, Inc. is proud of the fact that slurry seal was chosen as
the first resurfacing material ever installed on the Mackinac Bridge in its thirty-year history and that our firm was
selected as the contractor.
