Contra Costa County Public Works will begin construction on the Contra Costa County Local Streets and Roads Preservation Project. The project consists of pavement preservation work at two sites:
Site 1: Grind and replace the top 2 inches of asphalt on El Portal Drive between the Richmond City Limits and San Pablo Dam Road and on San Pablo Dam Road between El Portal Drive and the Richmond City Limits near Tri Lane. The work also includes replacing traffic signal loop detectors and replacing traffic stripes and pavement markings. The total project length is about 3.4 miles.
Site 2: A micro-surface treatment on Vasco Road in the Brentwood area between the Brushy Creek Bridge and the Alameda County line. The work also includes replacing traffic stripes and pavement markings. The total project length is about 7.2 miles.
Construction will begin at Site 1 on Monday, August 19, 2019. Construction will begin at Site 2 mid-September 2019. Construction will be complete in late October 2019, barring unforeseen circumstances. Construction operations will occur primarily at night, with some day work expected, and will be scheduled to minimize impacts to commute traffic. Expect delays up to 15 minutes during construction.
Funding for this project is provided by the One Bay Area Grant Program and gas tax revenues provided by the SB1 Road Repair and Accountability Act. More information for this project can be found at http://www.cccounty.us/pwdmap.
