Street Work on Central Avenue Between Webster Street & Pacific Avenue

Jun 5, 2012

Beginning June 15, street work will be performed along Central Avenue between Webster Street and Pacific Avenue that will affect traffic circulation. The work will be performed Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The project is expected to last three weeks, depending upon the weather. Although one lane of traffic in each direction will remain open at all times, motorists may experience minor disruptions in traffic. There may be an increase in noise and dust levels during construction. Bus stop access will be maintained throughout the project duration.

The work is a microseal process that will protect the street pavement and seal any cracks and patches in the street. Prior to microsealing the street surface, all striping will be removed by the contractor and replaced once the microseal work is complete. Microseal is very sticky when fresh and difficult to remove from shoes, tires, driveways, clothing, carpets, and pets. As such, entering the construction zone before the street is reopened is prohibited.

Motorists with destinations other than Central Avenue are encouraged to use alternate routes. Door hangers, advising residents and businesses of the work, will be posted on the building’s door approximately 72 hours prior to the microseal activity. On the day that a street is to be microsealed, all access to the street and driveways will be blocked for four hours until the microseal cures. No-Parking signs will also be posted on barricades 72 hours before the work commences.

The City appreciates your cooperation and patience during this construction. Questions or information about the project should be directed to Trung Nguyen at (510) 747-7930.
