California Oaks Road Rehabilitation Project

Map of California Oaks Rehabilitation Project

Project Scope: Rehabilitation of two miles of California Oaks Road from Interstate-15 to Clinton Keith Road. The rehabilitation will include utilizing Cold In-Place Recycling (“CIR”) which grinds the existing asphalt pavement, crushes the material, injects asphalt emulsion and additives, and repaves the rejuvenated asphalt. The process is environmentally friendly by re-utilizing existing materials and eliminating hundreds of truck trips. The CIR process is followed by the installation of a two-inch hot-mix asphalt cap layer, along with the re-installation of traffic loop detectors and striping.

Cost: $1,945,690

Funding Source: SB1 Roadway Maintenance and Rehabilitation

Approvals: City Council awarded contract to Hardy & Harper, Inc., at the September 17, 2019 Council meeting.

Project Start: October 2019

Project Duration: 3 Months

Project Manager: Jeff Hitch,

*The City only applies slurry seal to residential streets. Residential streets that are private, or in gated communities, or are otherwise non-conforming to City residential street standards are not maintained by the City and will not be included in the scope of this slurry seal project.

**No requests to add or remove streets to the current project will be accepted. The intent is to include the remaining 50% of City-maintained residential streets in the 2021 Citywide Slurry Seal project, and then divide all residential streets into approximately 4 sectors that will be placed on a rotation of smaller slurry projects that will be completed every 2 years. This will result in a slurry seal being applied to all eligible streets on a consistent schedule every 5-7 years.
