County gives go-ahead to resurface 4.48 miles of Ramona streets

San Diego County supervisors have OK’d the bidding and contract process to resurface 56.26 miles of county-maintained roads, including 4.48 miles of Ramona streets.

The supervisors’ June 17 vote appropriates $4,177,000 of Proposition 1B revenue for the project.  In November 2006, California voters approved Prop. 1B earmarking $2 billion for local streets and roads.

The county’s Department of Public Works prioritizes road and storm drain pipe replacement through a pavement management system that utilizes field review and mechanical data. Visual assessments of the degree and type of cracking or other surface defects are complemented by pavement management software that validates and categorizes surface distress.

The work will utilize rubberized emulsion asphaltic slurry resurfacing.  Plans and specifications for the resurfacing are complete, and utility companies have been notified so they can schedule trenching work before the resurfacing or coordinate that work with the resurfacing project.

The resurfacing work is expected to begin in August 2009 and be finished by October 2009.

Ramona segments consist of 0.25 miles of Alice Street between Cedar and Ash streets, 0.15 miles of Anna Rose Lane from Hanson Lane to the cul-de-sac, 1.5 miles of Archie Moore Road from State Route 67 to Highland Valley Road, 0.75 miles of Ash Street between Alice Street and SR-78, 0.14 miles of Day Street from La Brea Street to SR-67, 0.77 miles of Dos Picos Park Road from Mussey Grade Road to the park entrance, 0.26 miles of Keyser Road from Hanson Lane to the end of the county-maintained road, and 0.66 miles of Olive Street between Davis Street and Summer Glen Drive.

In addition, the work will resurface 5.18 miles of Wildcat Canyon Road in Lakeside between Willow Road and Founders Way.
