Alameda roadwork stalls traffic in Atherton

The stretch of the Alameda de las Pulgas that runs through Atherton isn't the bumpiest bit of road in the Midpeninsula, and Atherton officials aim to keep it that way.

From Monday, Aug. 11, through Thursday, Aug. 14, motorists can expect delays and one-way traffic controls due to the town's resurfacing project, said Duncan Jones, Atherton's public works director.

The cape seal project will add a top layer of heated asphalt emulsion to fill in cracks and waterproof the roadway, extending its life.

The first phase of the project backed up traffic along the much-used north-south thoroughfare on Wednesday morning, Aug. 6.

"It took three or four hours to get done, and there were 10 minute delays in each direction," Mr. Jones said.

The project area stretches from Camino al Lago to Stockbridge Avenue, he said.
