Portola Valley: Road work to last through June

 

The stretch of Alpine Road that enters Portola Valley from Ladera is on deck for resurfacing, part of the annual road repair program that starts this year on April 25 and continues through June, according to a report from the Public Works Director Howard Young.

Also scheduled for attention this year are Deer Park Lane, Fremontia Street, Horseshoe Bend, Meadowood Drive, Saddleback Drive, Sandstone Street and Sunhill Street, the report said.

The road work begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m. and the road will be open to normal traffic at the end of the day, albeit on a temporarily rougher and dustier road. Parking restrictions will start two days before construction begins.

The work will include grinding worn areas, covering old asphalt with new, pavement sealing and new traffic markings, Mr. Young said. The timing between road repair and resurfacing may lag so as to accomplish the work in a cost-effective manner.

To reach the on-site inspector, Tom Anderson, during the work days, call 831-915-3395.

For questions about the project, call Mr. Young at 851-1700, ext. 200, or send him an email at hyoung@portolavalley.net.

Lets hope PV can do a better job paving than Atherton - so called "new" paving that takes close to a year and ends up full of lumps like a cheap driveway takes all the charm out of the lovely country roads of our lovely area. Or does anyone remember when paving was flat and smooth?
