The El Camino Real South Resurfacing Project included multiple pavement treatment methods to rehabilitate approximately 1.3 miles of El Camino Real from El Bordo Avenue to Santa Barbara Road. Over the past several decades, roadway improvements and fixes associated with an assortment of small projects resulted in a patchwork of pavement conditions through this corridor. The engineering design team (Eikhof Design Group and sub-consultant Pavement Engineering, Inc.) worked closely with Public Works staff to evaluate multiple rehabilitation and resurfacing options and provide a comprehensive and cost-effective rehabilitation project. Pavement treatments on this project included full-depth asphalt replacement (variable depth), asphalt overlay, and micro surfacing treatment. The city’s contractor, Papich Construction, completed the project on time and within budget. Funds for this project came from Senate Bill 1 (SB1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

The city expressed its thanks to all of its residents, business owners, and employees of Atascadero State Hospital for their patience during this recent construction.
