Three-Month, Multi-Street Construction Project Using Recycled Roadway Now Underway

Now through October 2017, several streets will undergo a unique, environmentally-friendly and long-term, cost-effective rehabilitation using the full-depth reclamation (FDR) process, which rebuilds worn out streets by recycling the existing roadway.

Streets under construction are: Buaro Street, from Lampson Avenue to Chapman Avenue; Twintree Avenue, from Harbor Boulevard to Buaro Street; Westminster Avenue, from Dawson Street to Euclid Street; and Dorothy Avenue, Coleman Place, and Stanrich Place at Century Boulevard.

Motorists are advised that traffic on Buaro Street and Twintree Avenue will be reduced to one lane to facilitate construction work. Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Access to businesses and residences along the construction area will be maintained at all times.

For the FDR process, the old asphalt and base materials are pulverized, mixed with cement and water, and compacted to produce a stronger, more durable base. FDR prolongs the life of the pavement while reducing maintenance costs in the future.

The work also involves the removal and construction of uplifted median curbs and sidewalk, bus pads, traffic striping, and raised pavement markers.

The project is funded by Measure “M2” Fairshare, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and gas tax funds.
