Seal Beach repaving project half completed

The city of Seal Beach recently announced that the local street resurfacing project for Old Town is about half completed.

The goal of this project is to rehabilitate selected streets in Old Town, Seal Beach.

They are:

• 6th Street (Ocean Avenue to Electric Avenue).

• 7th Street (Ocean Avenue to Pacific Coast Highway).

• 8th Street (Ocean Avenue to PCH).

• Central Avenue (2nd Street to 12th Street).

• Seal Way (11th Street to 14th Street).

The project includes; removal and replacement of concrete curbs and gutters, access ramps, driveway and alley approaches, sidewalk, parkway improvements and paving with rubberized asphalt concrete.

Construction began on April 12, 2010 and is anticipated to be complete on Aug. 13.

The contractor is nearing completion of the concrete work and parkway improvement.

The next steps for the contractor, before paving, are to grind down sections of the concrete in the street, weed spray and crack seal the concrete.  Shortly after, the contractor will lay the first level of asphalt on the streets, and then place down the final rubberized asphalt surface.

Please remember during daytime hours, parking and street access will be limited. Trash pickup will remain on schedule; however, street sweeping will be suspended on the listed roads during the course of construction.  Also, exercise caution when near the construction zone.  Your cooperation in observing all traffic controls, parking restrictions, and flagmen will be sincerely appreciated and will help expedite construction.

This temporary construction inconvenience will provide a long lasting road.
