2016 Road Resurfacing Project

Post Date:05/11/2016


The Town of Portola Valley will be performing street resurfacing beginning Monday, May 16th.

This project will consist of applying surface seals to the road surface. Work is scheduled to take place on the streets listed here, weather permitting.  The repairs will include grinding worn areas, crack sealing, a surface seal treatment, and repainting traffic markings.

Traffic will have limited access through those streets during the street resurfacing process. Traffic controls within the construction area will be in place. Normal construction hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Two days prior to construction, “No Parking” and “Tow-away” signs will be posted with the effective time and date.  Roads will be reopened to full traffic and parking at the end of each working day, however, during the construction period, loose gravel and an uneven pavement surface will result from removing the surface asphalt.  For the entire project, we estimate it will take 2 weeks to repair damaged pavement sections, 1 week to remove traffic striping, 1 week to apply surface seals, and 1 week to repaint traffic markings. To maintain competitive prices, the contractor, G. Bortolotto & Co., Inc. is allowed to schedule the work in a cost effective manner which may result in a time lag between repair, required curing times, and resurfacing.

We are aware that there will be residents who will be inconvenienced by the street resurfacing work and we ask for your cooperation and understanding. These improvements will result in an improved street that will serve the area for many years.
