The area is bounded by Kinser Road on the north, Service Road on the south, Morgan Road on the west and Blaker Road on the east. Subdivisions were work will be done are Glenbrook, Inland Blaker, Melba Estates, Burton Estates, Don Pedro Park, Cherry Glen, Southwood 1, Orchard Estates, Rader Estates1, 2 and 3, Inland Estates, Hillview Estates, Pink Place, Maria Estates, Sierra Park, Whispering Woods, Del Sol Estates, Serenity Estates, and Westwood Meadows.

Slurry seals are a mixture of emulsified asphalt (a mixture made from oil and fine sand aggregate) that extends the life of a street.
