Street Improvement Project to Start in Maintenance Zone 1

As part of the City’s ongoing effort to maintain local roadways, the Public Works Department is planning a residential pavement rehabilitation project to improve the appearance and lengthen the life of streets in Maintenance Zone One – bounded by Yorktown Avenue to the north, Magnolia Street to the east, Pacific Coast Highway to the south, and Lake Street to the west.

This $4.1 million project will rehabilitate approximately 60 residential streets. Work will include pavement repairs, sealing cracks, striping, and an asphalt overlay. The overlay process consists of grinding the streets first, and then putting down new asphalt. The asphalt overlay portion of the program grinds an inch and half of the existing pavement and puts back an inch and a half of new asphalt.

Residents should adhere to the “No Parking” signs that will be posted 48 hours prior to work staring. Working hours will be 7am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, and should take approximately one to two days to complete. The overlay work for Zone 1 will take approximately three months, beginning now through August 2024. Construction crews will do their best to mitigate impacts to residents and commuters.

The residential zone maintenance program divides the City up into 12 Zones in which one zone is worked on per year. The program is designed to extend the life and durability of our residentials streets. Concrete removal/repairs, tree removals/planting, installation of new ADA curb ramps, asphalt overlay, and slurry seal are all components of the program.
