Slurry Seal Application to Trigger Temporary Street Closures

Monday, October 5, 2015

Temporary street closures will be required between Oct. 13 and Oct. 22 in four Santee neighborhoods to accommodate the application of a two-step slurry seal on the streets.
The application of slurry seal, a preventative maintenance aimed at extending the lifespan of a street, is part of a citywide pavement repair and rehabilitation project that began earlier this year.

The affected streets include Ganley Drive, Kerrigan Street, Princess Sarit Way, Michala Place, Trechard Street, Wycliffe Street, Celita Court, Settle Road, Settle Court. Gaslton Drive, Highdale Road, Bellagio Road, Carita Road and Carita Court.
Residents will receive advanced notice of when the work will occur on their street along with a map showing which adjacent streets are available for alternate parking.

The slurry sealing is done in two layers, the first containing large aggregate and a second with finer aggregate to provide a smoother finish.

Streets scheduled to receive a slurry seal will be closed to all traffic from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to allow the slurry seal to dry.  Residents who need to use their vehicles should park on adjacent streets prior to 7 a.m. on the morning of the application to ensure they are not blocked in.
The fire department has been notified of the street closure schedule and access will be provided in the event of an emergency.

Prospect Avenue Project Update

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Work continues on removing overhead wires and installing  undergrounding utility lines along the mile-long project from Cucamaca Street to Magnolia Avenue.

SDG&E, Cox Cable and AT&T are coordinating with property owners with the goal to complete the electrical conversion work by November.

Once the underground utility system is functioning, the overhead wires and wood power poles will be removed. This is expected to take six to eight weeks.

After the wires and poles are removed, workers will restore the disturbed areas with concrete and asphalt and should be finished in two or three weeks.

Additional landscaping, including shrubs and decorative rocks, will be installed after the undergrounded utility lines are functioning.  In the meantime, the trees planted earlier this year are being hand watered.

Questions about the project can be directed to Senior Civil Engineer Toby Espinola at (619) 258-4100 ext. 174.
