2017 Street Resurfacing Project

Council adopted a resolution to award a construction contract to G. Bortolotto & Co., Inc. for the 2017 Street Resurfacing Project. The project consists of resurfacing and rehabilitating 21.5 miles of roadways with various treatments, with an additional 8 miles of roadways receiving a crack sealing treatment designed to preserve and extend the life of the roadway. The primary factor for choosing roadway segments included for rehabilitation is the Pavement Conditon Index (PCI) of each roadway. PCI is a measurement of a street's condition, and is derived through field inspections that utilize scoring criteria developed by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) pavement management program. Field inspections were conducted in the fall of 2016, and the roads with the lowest PCI ratings were included in this year's project.

The project included the use of Rubberized Asphalt Concrete (RAC) on the main thoroughfares of Crystal Springs Rd. and Hillsborough Blvd. made possible through grant funding from CalRecycle. The use of recycled Rubberized Asphalt Concrete (RAC) provides a smoother and quieter roadway surface than conventional asphalt, and helps reduce the accumulation of disposed tires occupying landfills.
