PLEASE USE CAUTION AND FOLLOW TRAFFIC CONTROL WHEN DRIVING THRU ALL CONSTRUCTION SITES.
Thank you for your patience and considerations during the road sealings last week. Please do your best to protect the road surface while it cures. The slurry seal can be damaged by sharp turning during the curing phase. This damage can be avoided by making wide turns and always making sure the vehicle is moving before turning the steering wheel. If the road is not a dead end road please choose to drive straight through instead of performing a u-turn.
2014 Slurry Seal - Project "A" (click here for more information)
Our Pavement Rehabilitation project for 2014 performs asset protection in the form of preventive maintenance such as a slurry seal. It is less expensive to prolong the life of good asphalt with maintenance, then to wait until it deteriorates so far that it needs full replacement. Preventative maintenance is a cost effective way to extend the life of the pavement saving both cost and environmental impact.
SLURRY SCHEDULE FOR GROUP A
SLURRY SCHEDULE FOR GROUP A - by street & date
SLURRY SEAL NEIGHBOR NOTICE
The streets scheduled for this work are:
Center Blvd (between San Rafael and Forest)
Woodland Avenue (between Cedar and San Anselmo Ave)
Ross Avenue (between Cedar and San Anselmo Ave)
Sequoia (between Millbrae and Hilldale)
Richmond (Bolinas to Mariposa)
A section of Center Blvd will be closed from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Wednesday, August 13, 2014 for road sealing. Center Blvd will be closed at Center Blvd. & San Anselmo Ave. (Lansdale Station area) thru to Center Blvd & Sycamore Ave. Intersections at both ends of the road closure will be open to detour traffic to Sir Francis Drake Blvd and San Anselmo Ave (local traffic only). Property owners with sprinkler/irrigation systems adjacent to Center Blvd should turn off their irrigation system so water does not overflow onto the newly surfaced road. The contractor will deliver more information to homes and businesses that are within the project limits.
2014 Slurry Seal - Project "B"
During September 2014 (schedule will be posted once available), we anticipate a one day slurry project. The streets tentatively scheduled for this work are:
The slurry seal will help protect the asphalt from ultra violet and rain infiltration which cause further cracking and deterioration. These streets have already received rubberized crack seal treatment for major cracks. Several of these streets have localized areas of pavement failure. In July, contractor crews will be removing and replacing these localized areas in preparation of the slurry seal.
2014 LED Street Light Retrofit Project
There are 411 high pressure sodium (HPS) street lights throughout the Town of San Anselmo. The 2014 LED Street Light Retrofit project will convert these street lights to energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights that will greatly reduce the Town’s energy consumption while at the same time maintaining existing light levels. The proposed project is in accordance with the Town’s Climate Action Change Plan and will reduce Green House Gas Emissions by approximately 140,000 lbs CO2 per year, removing the equivalent of 12 cars off the road per year.
Conversion of the street lights to LED by the Town’s contractor DC Electric, Inc. will begin the week of June 30, 2014. The work is expected to take 3 weeks to complete during which time there will be construction traffic controls, lane closures and parking restrictions at various locations around Town between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm. Conversion of lights on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and Red Hill Avenue maybe completed at night to avoid traffic interruptions. A map of the existing street lights to be converted is available at: https://batchgeo.com/map/97ab43506007e5d22b9818d83c956267

PG&E - Pressure Test
Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is performing a hydrostatic pressure test on our natural gas pipeline. This is part of a system-wide program to ensure the safety of the transmission pipelines that deliver gas across the region. PGE will be testing at locations on westbound Red Hill Avenue, and westbound Center Street in San Anselmo (near the HUB). Work will begin at the end of May and last until mid-August, although weather and other factors affecting safe working conditions could change the schedule.
What to expect:
This test involves excavating around parts of the existing underground pipeline, filling the pipeline with water, and increasing the pressure to a level that is much higher than the pipeline’s normal operating pressure with natural gas. The test will confirm the pipeline’s safe operating pressure and reveal any potential weaknesses. If the pipe does not meet acceptable standards, it will be repaired or replaced with new pipe. During this test, you will see PG&E and contractor trucks, water tanks, and heavy equipment. Your gas service will continue without interruption in most cases. If that changes, a PG&E representative will contact you. At times, you may smell gas and hear a loud, steady noise as we vent natural gas from the pipeline using safe and common techniques. Although this is normal when crews are working, we encourage anyone who has concerns about he smell of gas to call us 24 hours a day at 1-800-743-5000. PG&E will clearly mark all work areas, and traffic flaggers will help to direct traffic. Please plan for minor delays when driving through this area.
If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please call your PGE Customer Care Representative Aaron Murphy at 707-577-1062.
