Pavement rehabilitation project for Santa Lucia Road begins
–The City of Atascadero held an official groundbreaking ceremony to announce roadwork scheduled to begin on Monday, July 1 as part of the Santa Lucia Road Pavement Rehabilitation Project.
Work on Santa Lucia Road will extend from Ardilla Road to Portola Road. There will be some minor preparatory work performed by the city’s contractor prior to the week, which will be limited to stockpiling materials and equipment and installing traffic signage. Beginning July 1, construction will commence with the replacement of storm drain culverts and pavement rehabilitation. Work is expected to take approximately one month, concluding by Aug. 6. Unforeseen conditions or rain could extend this end date.
The contractor is expected to close one lane of traffic during construction operations and use flagging control. Delays of up to 20 minutes should be expected during construction. Non-residents are encouraged to use other routes through this area. Residents of Santa Lucia Road will be allowed access but should expect intermittent delays.
