Redwood City is about to start a road resurfacing project on Main Street between Maple and Veterans. This work starts on Monday, September 24.

This work will provide a smoother, safer, improved roadway – but will cause some inconvenience to residents, businesses, and motorists in these areas during the work. The major resurfacing work is scheduled to begin September 24, 2012, and will be completed in approximately one week. Temporary striping will be installed after the paving and permanent striping will be installed in October

Neighbors are being notified of specific scheduling and details of the work, and appropriate “No Parking” signage is being installed. The short-term inconvenience consists of a requirement to keep cars off the street during certain portions of the work. The City will take all reasonable measures to minimize the impact of construction activity, though some inconvenience is unavoidable.

Motorists should expect periodic lane closures, detours, some dust, and temporary parking restrictions during construction. All roadway users are asked to be particularly cautious during construction. If possible, motorists should use alternate routes during the work in order to avoid delays.

Overall work hours will be 7:30 am until 4 pm. Main Street WILL remain open to traffic during construction. At times Main Street may be under one-way traffic control with flaggers to stop traffic so that opposing vehicles may pass. Appropriate signage will be posted in the area.

In general, the process for this resurfacing project will involve two phases, Prep Work and Overlay:

  • Prep      Work – repair failed areas and low spots, and remove weeds;
  • Overlay      – loose material will be swept up, and a two inch layer of new asphalt will be placed on top of the existing surface. Traffic controls will be in place to direct vehicles around the new asphalt. Drivers are asked to proceed carefully and look for signs to direct traffic.

Thanks for your patience on this, I think you’ll be pleased with the result!
