The Pacific Avenue Resurfacing Project is scheduled to begin this week and continue through this fall.
This project, which is funded from the federal Regional Surface Transportation Program, will make improvements to 2.3 miles of roadway by resurfacing Pacific Avenue from March Lane to Hammer Lane and Thornton Road from Hammer Lane to El Camino Avenue. These are high traffic streets with poor pavement conditions, and the last resurfacing was over 17 years ago.
Work on the project is being done by Granite Construction Company. As construction progresses, signage will be placed to notify drivers of changing conditions and workers in the area. Some travel tips to help during the construction:
All businesses will remain open during construction; watch for signage and vehicles when entering and exiting.
During the day, only one lane or turn lane will be closed, in either direction, at a time. Allow extra time for travel and anticipate some traffic delays while work is occurring.
Speed limits will be reduced to 25 mph during construction; slow down for the cone zone.
