City planning underground improvements on Spring Street
–The City of Paso Robles Public Works department will be performing street maintenance repairs on Spring Street from 10th to 16th. With weather permitting, the work shall begin the week of March 27.
The first task is to install underground improvements: communication wire conduits, water and sewer pipes. Once the underground improvements are completed, then concrete work shall commence. The final phase: grind out the old pavement, place a leveling course to smooth out the rough surface, and then add the rubberized asphalt for the final surface.
The conduit work improvements between 10th and 16th streets will occur during the daytime hours so there will be times when traffic lanes shall be re-routed to accommodate construction. The water pipes at 13th and Spring Street, and the sewer pipes at 14th and Spring Street, will occur during the evening hours as these intersections will need to be closed for the contractor to trench across Spring Street to install the pipelines. Plating and temporary paving will occur at the end of the evening to allow the intersection to be clear for traffic during the day. The pavement grinding and asphalt paving will occur during the evening hours so that traffic will not be impacted during the day. The contractor has built into the schedule the need to make the area safe and clear for the Annual Wine Festival for the weekend of May 19 & 20.
All underground and pavement work, listed above should be completed by early fall of 2017.
