Road Maintenance Update, May 23, 2016
Published: May 23, 2016
This week, the Bridge crew continues
replacing a failed bridge viaduct along Summerhome Park Road, in the Hacienda
area. A culvert was just replaced on Kennedy Road, west of Sebastopol. The
Bridge crew will continue working this week on Summerhome Park Road, near the
intersection of Madrona Road. The road has been narrowed down to one lane with
traffic controls in effect between 7:30 am and 4 pm daily. The Culvert crew
will continue replacing several cross culverts along Burnside Road. One lane
traffic controls with minor delays can be expected daily between Watertrough Road
and Barnett Valley Road.
Road crews will be roadside
mowing and brushing, primarily along planned summer chip seal routes including
Graton Road, Ely Road, Corona Road, and Stewarts Point Skaggs Springs Road.
Additional mowing is planned along Bodega Hwy and West Soda Rock Road. Pothole
crews will be out early this week along Barnett Valley Road in the west county
and the Boys Hot Springs area in the south county.
Work continues in preparation for the seasonal
opening of the Asti summer crossing. Operators and equipment will be working to
complete construction of the causeway. Due to a new Cal OSHA safety requirement,
the bridge staff has been retrofitting the bridge decks for both Asti and the
Odd Fellows crossing at Korbel. Engineering requirements for the retrofit have
been completed and we are now awaiting parts. Once completed, decks will be
installed at Asti first, then at Odd Fellows.
