MILLION STREET IMPROVEMENTS
TO BEGIN LATE AUGUST IN DALY CITY
Daly City - The City Council
recently awarded two Public Works construction
contracts, totaling nearly $1.1 million, for
street resurfacing, slurry seal and crack seal
work at several thoroughfares and neighborhoods
in Daly City.
The $846,000 street resurfacing project will
provide new asphalt concrete overlay on 2.3
miles of city streets in the Southern Hills
and Crocker areas, in the Westlake north neighborhood,
and on portions of Skyline Drive and Sullivan
Avenue. In addition, 26 wheelchair access ramps
will be installed at various street intersections.
Ghilotti Bros. Inc., who was awarded the contract,
has been in business since 1951. The San Rafael-based
contractor has recently worked on several street
improvement projects in Daly City, as well as
in San Rafael and San Francisco.
The $222,500 street slurry seal contract involves
6 miles of slurry sealing on city streets in
the northern part of Westlake, and 3.5 miles
of crack sealing work being performed in the
southern part of Hillside. The slurry process
will help prevent city streets from getting
potholes and cracks. The slurry and crack seal
program is expected to increase the pavement's
condition and extend its life for approximately
five to seven years. Graham Contractors Inc.,
who was awarded the contract, is from San Jose.
Both construction projects are scheduled to
begin late August, and to be completed by early
October 2002. Street closures will be from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m.
Street repairs are selected based on priority
need, as assessed by the City's Pavement Management
Program. For more information about these Public
Works projects, call the Engineering Division
