Slurry Seal 2016 - Westlake Area
Since 1998, Daly City Public Works has undertaken a comprehensive street pavement preventative maintenance program that includes an annual Street Slurry Seal Project. Street slurry sealing replaces fine aggregate stripped from the pavement surface, reduces water penetration in the roadway base and thereby reduces base failures and the resultant damage that is much more costly to repair. This year’s project includes the Westlake neighborhood.
John Daly Boulevard Streetscape Improvements
The project is located on John Daly Boulevard from Delong Street to Mission Street. The project enhances the multimodal connectivity between public transit hubs in this area. The project will improve accessibility for bicyclist and pedestrian experience along this heavily traveled corridor. Improvements include the installation of bicycle lanes, ADA compliant features, and a widened, buffered sidewalk with seating and gathering points. The project will install a network of bioswales in the median islands to slow and naturally treat stormwater runoff.
The project design was started in fiscal year 2013-14 and construction is anticipated to commence in the summer of 2016. The City competed for and was awarded two separate grants for this project for $1,000,000 each for a total of $2,000,000: the OneBayAreaGrant (OBAG) federal grant from MTC and Measure A grant from San Mateo County City/County Association of Governments.
Serramonte Library Renovation
Serramonte Library was constructed in 1974; since then, there have been significant changes from in the accessibility requirements with the passage of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). The renovations include upgrading the men and women’s restroom facilities to comply with current ADA requirements, installing new ADA compliant hi/low water fountains, and possibly installing automatic doors with a push button in the library entrance if funding allows.
Geneva Avenue Underground Phase II
The PG&E Rule 20A program allows for agencies to place underground overhead electric facilities in areas where the street is extensively used by the general public and undergrounding will eliminate a heavy concentration of overhead electric facilities. Other overhead utilities such as telephone, cable, and electricity for street lights are concurrently also placed underground at the expense of their respective owners. This work is done performed under provisions of Rule 20A, an electric tariff filed with the California Public Utilities Commission.
The Geneva Avenue Underground project enhances utility service reliability and street frontage appearance by placing utilities that are currently above ground to below ground. The project funds the City’s share of the joint trench costs to install conduit for its street lights as well as the cost to install the street lights. The work includes furnishing and installing free-standing street light poles with light emitting diode (LED) fixtures, removing existing utility poles and cobra street lights, connecting street lights to already installed adjacent pullboxes and installing cable to provide a full functioning lighting system.
Work related to Geneva Avenue Underground Phase I work was performed in 2014 and 2015 on Geneva Avenue from Pasadena Street to Schwerin Street. Phase II of the program completes the underground efforts on Geneva Avenue within the City’s limit between Schwerin Street and Bayshore Boulevard.
Sewer Main Improvements
The project upgrades the sanitary sewer mains on portions of Junipero Serra Boulevard/Citrus Avenue, Bruno Avenue, Serramonte Boulevard, and Citrus Avenue. The project involves abandoning and removing existing sanitary sewer mains, installing new sewer mains, reconnecting side sewer services, adjusting and/or replacing utility manhole frames and covers, utility boxes, and monument boxes, conducting CCTV inspection, and reinstalling traffic striping and pavement markings.
