Summer road fixes on tap

Summer road fixes on tap

Alamedan Staff

It's that time of the year again: Time for summer street repair and road resurfacing projects that mean temporary closures on some Island streets (and ultimately, smoother roadways).

The city will be repairing and resurfacing 11 street segments this summer. Construction will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

For the eight street segments that are getting asphalt concrete overlays, city officials said they will keep one lane of traffic open each way if possible; if not, construction workers will flag drivers headed in both directions through a single lane of traffic.

The city will also shut down three street segments so contractors can lay down a slurry seal, which takes up to six hours to lay down and harden; those street segments will be closed to all traffic - with no access to driveways - until the work is completed.

Contractors will post "no parking" signs 72 hours before any work that necessitates the removal of parking is initiated. Bus stop access will be maintained through the course of the work.

In addition to traffic delays, drivers and residents may experience increased noise and dust.
