Pacific Avenue Resurfacing Project Begins This Week Department: City Manager

The Pacific Avenue Resurfacing Project is scheduled to begin this week and continue through this fall.

This project, which is funded from the federal Regional Surface Transportation Program, will make improvements to 2.3 miles of roadway by resurfacing Pacific Avenue from March Lane to Hammer Lane and Thornton Road from Hammer Lane to El Camino Avenue.

These are high traffic streets with poor pavement conditions, and the last resurfacing was over 17 years ago.

Work on the project is being done by Granite Construction Company. As construction progresses, signage will be placed to notify drivers of changing conditions and workers in the area.
