Los Altos streets undergo repairs through summer

Summer is here, and so is the usual slew of street repair projects throughout Los Altos.

Street resurfacing work is currently underway along Almond Avenue between San Antonio Road and El Monte Avenue, and Covington Road between El Monte and Springer Road. Work on Almond, Brentwood Court and Cuesta Drive was performed Friday. Scheduled next is work on Almond and Covington set for Monday (June 29), Covington Tuesday (June 30) and July 1, and Almond again July 2.

Additional micro-surfacing work is scheduled on: Covington; Cuesta; Vera Cruz Avenue Volti Lane; Elmhurst Drive; Pico Lane; Westminster Lane; Alicia Way; Thatcher Drive; Eureka Avenue; Casita Way; Chelsea Drive; Chelsea Court; View Street; Panchita Way; Woodstock Lane; Ranchita Drive, Brentwood Court; Creeden Way; Pinehurst Drive; and Ronald Court.

“The project(s) may require lane closures and parking restrictions on the frontage of properties on affected streets,” city officials said.

The street resurfacing work is expected to wrap up by mid- to late-August.

Street slurry seal work also is being done on several streets through mid-August. City officials described the work as “repair of minor pavement failures, application of slurry coating, and installation of striping.”

“The slurry seal is a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion and small aggregates commonly applied to roadway surfaces as a preventative treatment to prolong remaining life of roadway,” officials said.

Sanitary sewer repairs, including pipe replacement, is scheduled to begin Aug. 3 and take approximately seven months to complete. The work involves 14 locations: Julie Lane; Ranchita Drive; Marlbarough Avenue; Grant Road; Richardson Avenue; Nightingale Court; St. Joseph Avenue; Laver Court; Highlands Circle; Scott Lane; Oxford Drive; Deodara Drive; Woods Lane; and St. Marks Court.
