Projects completed were the 2022 F-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project and the Traffic Way Sewer Main Replacement Project
ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero announced the completion of the 2022 F-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project and the Traffic Way Sewer Main Replacement Project. City Council celebrated with official ribbon cuttings last week to announce the completion of both major projects.
The 2022 F-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project is nearing completion, with the rehabilitation of 3.3 miles of roadways. Road segments in this project included Ardilla Road north of Balboa Road, Balboa Road from San Fernando Road to Santa Ana Road, Cebada Road, Cenegal Road from Laurel Road to the original western limit, and Corriente Road between San Fernando Road and Santa Ana Road. Pavement rehabilitation included asphalt overlays and full section roadway reconstruction, depending upon the existing condition. Other improvements included minor drainage enhancements intended to extend the life of the newly replaced roadway. The total project costs were approximately $3.5 million and construction was performed by Souza Construction, Inc. of San Luis Obispo.
The Traffic Way Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project replaced over one mile of undersized 10 and 12-inch diameter sewer main pipe with larger 15 and 18-inch diameter pipe beneath Traffic Way between Bajada Avenue (Colony Park Community Center) and San Jacinto Avenue. This segment of sewer main generally conveys all wastewater flows originating from City-sewered parcels north of Traffic Way, so it was important that the new gravity main be sized to accommodate both existing and future projected wastewater flows. Due to the depth of the sewer line and necessary trench widths, asphalt overlay of the northbound travel lane was included in the project to mitigate damage to the roadway. The total project costs were approximately $3.7c5 million and construction was performed by Specialty Construction, Inc. of San Luis Obispo.
Both projects had significant impacts to traffic over the past year, and the City wants to thank motorists and nearby residents and businesses for their patience during construction.
