Road work underway throughout town
The Town of Los Gatos’ 2022 Street Repair and Resurfacing work continues to move forward on numerous roadways.
The project’s contractor is currently completing crack sealing and asphalt spot repairs. Next steps include the application of rubber chip seal and slurry seal, and the installation of permanent striping.
A general schedule of the work is as follows:
• Rubber chip seal: Through Aug. 12
• Slurry seal: Aug. 12-19
• Striping: Complete by end of September
Residents on project streets should receive a two-week advance notice and a two-day reminder notification before the actual work. Streets may be closed with one-way traffic control in-place or traffic detours.
The hardening process can take up to six hours. Where “No Parking” signs are posted, make sure to park your vehicles on adjacent streets or elsewhere as needed. For information, contact Project Manager Suyesh Shrestha at 408.395.1437 or [email protected].
