Annual resurfacing project keeps streets safe and smooth

Posted on September 9, 2019 at 3:38 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Street resurfacing work is currently underway to maintain the condition of our streets. In August, work to keep the City’s streets in good service condition began as part of the 2019 Street Resurfacing project. Due to the City’s diligent bi-annual resurfacing program, the City of Menlo Park street network is considered to be in very good condition. As one of the City’s largest assets, our street network has an average pavement condition index (PCI) of 80 out of 100. 

The 2019 Street Resurfacing Project has a projected cost of $4.3 million and entails resurfacing various street sections throughout the City, including two street sections belonging to the County of San Mateo and four alternate street sections added, all totaling 27 street locations. To maximize efficiency and cost-effectiveness, the City takes this opportunity to make other upgrades to the street network, such as installing new curb ramps, updating facilities to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible standards, and improving minor storm drainage. This year’s work is estimated to be completed by the end of October 2019.
