Second Street paving preparation ramps up

By
March 14, 2011 |

To coincide with UC Davis’ spring break, construction activity will ramp up this week with preparations for Second Street paving downtown.

Major work with the most impact on traffic will be done next week, with minor work being done this week and the week after, according to the city of Davis Department of Public Works.

The city’s contractor, North Bay Construction, will work on Second Street, between B and H streets, lowering utility frames and covers and repairing failed pavement sections, a news release said.

Second Street will remain open to all traffic as this activity moves along, block by block. No parking will be allowed on either side of the street. This will be posted and enforced. Traffic will flow one direction at a time around the work zone and be controlled by flaggers.

Subsequently, the contractor will cold plane (grind) the asphalt concrete pavement of the entire stretch of Second Street, the news release said. This will take one work day and require the closure Second between B and H streets to all vehicular and bicycle traffic to avoid conflict with heavy equipment, many large trucks and cleanup crews. This closure includes cross traffic at all intersections between B and H streets.

Pedestrian access to sidewalks will be maintained, subject to some short delays. Signage will be in place to detour traffic around the work zone. The contractor also will grind a portion of E Street between Second and Third streets where sidewalk work was completed in the fall. This will affect traffic and parking for a limited period of time.

Second Street will then be open to all traffic while the contractor takes one work day to perform crack sealing. Flaggers will be directing traffic through the work zone. No parking will be permitted on either side of the street.

Following this operation, the prepared street surface will receive an asphalt concrete overlay. This will take two workdays and again will require the closure of Second Street to all vehicle and bicycle traffic and parking. This also includes cross traffic at the intersections.

On one of these days, the contractor also will pave the portion of E Street that was ground a few days prior. This will interrupt traffic and parking for a short time, the release said.

Following the overlay, the schedule will require three days to reset utility frames and covers to grade and three days for installation of pavement striping and signage. Expect minor delay for this work and parking restrictions.

All Second Street businesses will be open during the work, and pedestrians will have access. All streets will be reopened at the end of each work day, the release said.

The city of Davis has chosen next week for the work because it is UCD’s spring break, which generally has less downtown activity than most springtime weeks. This construction schedule is dependent on the weather, which is uncertain, and rain will cancel some activities.

“Please remember to follow the directions of all signs and flaggers, and proceed with caution through work zones,” the news release said.
