Overnight Road Work to Begin Sunday, August 4

Post Date:07/09/2019

Major construction and road resurfacing work is happening now on South Broad Street from Tank Farm Road to just beyond the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport to make streets safer for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. 

Roads and access to the airport will remain open throughout construction, but people can expect intermittent lane closures and delays.

IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDE:

  • ADA accessible curb corner ramps for pedestrian improvements.
  • Reconstruction of the road’s surface begins Sunday, August 4. This will be done overnight from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. to minimize impacts to commuters.
  • Roadway striping improvements will comply with new and current safety laws which includes a wider buffer for bike lanes.

This project implements the City’s Pavement Management Plan, a rotating and methodical approach to ensure all areas of the City receive regular maintenance. Additionally, this project makes progress toward the 2019-21 Major City Goal of sustainable transportation. Maintained roads help reduce wear-and-tear on vehicles, lead to improved gas mileage, and reduce the need for frequent tire replacement. The project is funded by the Local Revenue Measure, the City’s one-half percent sales tax that helps fund maintenance projects. 

All construction will be completed by early October. Road work information will be posted 30 hours prior to work.
