    Summer Street Improvements Underway

    Fairfield, California (Monday, July 22, 2019)—This week, the City of Fairfield begins its annual summer street pavement maintenance project to deliver on its promise to improve city streets using funds from the Measure P sales tax. The 2019 project, which will improve about 262,000 square feet of streets, will focus on Capitola Way/Woodcreek Drive and the intersection of Air Base Parkway at Heath Drive.

    Preparatory work including replacing ADA ramps, realigning crosswalks, and lowering utility manholes gets underway immediately on the Capitola/Woodcreek part of the project. “To reconstruct these streets, our contractor will grind down some of the existing asphalt and recycling it on-site to build the base of the street,” said Paul Kaushal, Fairfield interim Public Works director. “This process allows the City to save hauling expenses and divert asphalt from the landfill.” This second part of the daytime job starts in mid to late August and will require periodic single lane closures.

    This year’s other major improvement project, at the intersection of Air Base Parkway and Heath Drive, is a nighttime project with full road closures and temporary detours from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Driveway and pedestrian access may be restricted temporarily; however, at the end of each working period, two-way traffic will resume. The improvements to this intersection are scheduled to commence early in September.

    Funding for both projects is derived from your investment in Fairfield through sales tax Measure P and gas tax. The City anticipates the projects being completed by the end of October.
