Road work in Portola Valley

by Dave Boyce

New asphalt and repainted surface markings are coming to selected roadways in Portola Valley, most of them in the Portola Valley Ranch neighborhood.

The work is set to start this week, and continue through June 30, weather permitting. Road surfaces may be rough and uneven and contain loose gravel, and may be in an unfinished condition for a time, the town said. Contractors are allowed this flexibility in exchange for competitive pricing on the work.

Motorists may encounter regulated traffic on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., with no-parking and tow-away signs going up two days ahead of the work, the Public Works Department said.

For questions or concerns during construction, call on-site inspector Tom Anderson at (831) 915-3395.

Email to contact Public Works Director Howard Young for general project questions, or call him at 851-1700, ext. 200.

The details:

• A more intensive grading and resurfacing known as cape seal is set for Georgia Lane off Portola Road, Golden Oak Drive in the Westridge neighborhood, and Bear Paw, Longspur, Ohlone and Valley Oak streets in the Ranch, Public Works Director Howard Young told the Almanac.

• A less intensive resurfacing using a slurry seal is set for Upper Alpine Road, Bayberry Street in unincorporated Los Trancos Woods/Vista Verde, and the following roadways in the Ranch: Buckeye, Coyote Hill and Foxtail courts; Hawkview, Thistle, Wintercreek and Woodfern streets; Coalmine View, and Franciscan Ridge.
