County improving roads: Ramada Drive and El Pomar
Avoid road work on Ramada Drive and El Pomar – starting Sept. 8
County spending 1.5 million on improvements
The County of San Luis Obispo will begin construction to rehabilitate the pavement on a portion of Ramada Drive from the Paso Robles City limits South to Marquita Avenue, and on El Pomar Drive from Almond Drive to Cripple Creek Road.
The work will include installing a new cross gutter and ramp at Celle Propano, removing and replacing failed pavement, placing an overlay of hot mix asphalt concrete, and reconstructing various roadside facilities such as shoulders, dikes and guard rails. The work is expected to be completed in late October.
Papich Construction co:, Paso Robles, CA has been awarded the contract for $1,514,284 to perform the work. The work will begin September 8, 2013, and is expected to be
completed by the end of October 2013 depending upon the weather.
For the safety of the public and the workers, traffic will be reduced to one-way controls with flaggers required for each phase of the work. Most of work will be done at night from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Ramada Drive, with daytime work on El Pomar Drive. Daytime hours for lane closures will be from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Delays are expected to be up to 20 minutes during day time and night time hours. Motorists are advised to adjust their travel plans in consideration of the delays and consider alternative routes.
The work is required in order to maintain the pavement structural section in order to avoid costly repairs in the future, and to provide for a smooth, safe road. The project is funded by San Luis Obispo County Road Maintenance funds.
