In September the Arroyo Grande City Council approved a contract with American Asphalt South, Inc. for the 2017 Street Resurfacing project. A slurry seal application and striping to certain streets within the city are set to begin during the month of November. These improvements are part of a systematic program for maintaining, repairing and improving the streets within the city.
Areas that will receive the slurry seal are the Crown Hill neighborhood in the vicinity of Paulding Middle School, North Mason Street and Nevada Street. East Branch Street (Traffic Way to Mason Street), will receive a micro-surface treatment.
The project will also include a fog seal and restriping of East Branch Street from Garden Street around the curve towards Huasna Road; and the installation of two-way left turn arrows on East Grand Avenue at Alpine Street, and refreshing of the existing striping at the East Grand Avenue/Courtland Street intersection.
During construction, there will be intermittent lane closures for safety purposes, but it is not anticipated that any roadway will be closed completely to vehicular traffic. The Contractor will place informational barricades on the streets advising of specific dates and locations of parking restrictions. Please note that although the barricade may state certain hours, the actual construction work may occur at any time within that range. Normal work hours will be between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, to help alleviate traffic concerns in the Village and school areas, construction hours in these areas will be adjusted.
The street resurfacing and striping may cause temporary inconvenience because of the nature of the work. Contact the Public Works Department at (805) 473-5460 if you have any special needs or concerns that should be taken into consideration during construction. If you have specific questions about the project, call Capital Improvement Project Manager Jill McPeek, at (805) 473-5444. The City will also have an inspector on site to address any of your concerns.
