Road rehabilitation project to affect local traffic in Atascadero

ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero began a major portion of the pavement rehabilitation project for El Camino Real and San Anselmo Road on Tuesday, Oct. 9. It is expected to last through Oct. 16
On Tuesday, Oct. 9, the contractor for the City began Cold In Place Recycling (CIPR) operations on El Camino Real and San Anselmo Road. CIPR work was anticipated to begin on El Camino Real between San Anselmo Road (East) and San Benito Road and go through Thursday, Oct. 11. During this time, two lanes of traffic will remain open, although there may be times when traffic is restricted to single lane with flagging control.
Beginning Thursday, Oct. 11 and progressing through Tuesday, Oct. 16, the CIPR operation will be taking place on San Anselmo Road between El Camino Real and Del Rio Road. In order to expedite the process, the City is anticipating full closure of the road to through traffic. Residents on San Anselmo will be allowed into and out of their homes, but residents on intersecting streets are asked to access their homes using alternate routes. All businesses will remain open during construction and business access will be maintained throughout the project.
This project is funded partially by the recent statewide gas tax measure, Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. For more information, contact Nick DeBar, Director of Public Works/City Engineer, at 805-470-3456,
