El Cerrito announces upcoming road pavement work

ec streetwork

El Cerrito is planning to do pavement resurfacing work at a number of locations around town (see the map above) this week and next and advises that minor traffic delays could result.

The announcement from the city:

Roadwork Underway on various City Streets; Expect Temporary Traffic Impacts April 23, 24, 30 & May 1

El Cerrito, CA: Roadwork to improve a number of local streets in El Cerrito is underway. Weather-permitting, the pavement work planned for Wednesday and Thursday, April 23 and 24 will cause minor traffic delays (up to 5 minutes) for local traffic. The pavement work planned for Wednesday and Thursday, April 30 and May 1 will require temporary road or lane closures lasting 3-4 hours resulting in temporary detours and brief delays (up to 5 minutes) to local traffic.

This project is funded by the City’s Measure A Street Improvement Fund, (the El Cerrito Pothole Repair, Local Street Improvement and Maintenance Measure passed by voters in February 2008) and a $354,000 State-Local Partnership Program (SLPP) grant.

The street segments included in this project have moderately distressed pavement and will be resurfaced by applying an Asphalt Rubber Cape Seal treatment that is composed of a two-layer system of asphalt rubber chip seal with a slurry seal surfacing. Work has been underway for the last several weeks mainly constructing curb ramps at various locations associated with this project.

The streets included in this Project are:

· Bay Tree Lane

· Carquinez Avenue – Barrett to Lagunitas

· Cutting Blvd – Arlington to Junction

· Edwards Avenue – Barrett to Pointsett

· Jordan Avenue – Nason to Alta Punta

· Julian Drive

· Julian Court

· Knott Avenue – San Pablo to Key

· Lawrence Court

· Potrero Avenue – Arlington to Douglas

· Regency Court

· Scott Street

· Tamalpais Court

· Yuba Street – North City Limits to Zara

· Waldo Avenue – Pomona to Ashbury
