Crack Seal Project on 11/13/17 (rescheduled for December 1, 2017)
Map of the Dec 1 Crack Sealing
The Town has contracted Graham Contractors Inc (GCI) to perform crack sealing on various streets in San Anselmo. Crack sealing can help extend the life of a roadway, reduce pavement failures, and slow down deterioration. This form of preventative maintenance saves money by delaying major reconstructive pavement work.
Impacts to residents and motorists are minimal with crack seal maintenance, which is generally a fast- moving process. Streets are not closed during the work, however drivers may be asked to wait a few (less than 5) minutes for a sealant to cure before being allowed to drive over it. This helps keep vehicles free of the sealant material and allows the material applied to the roadway to create a stronger longer-lasting seal.
Some noise is associated with the initial step to prepare the cracks when a high pressure compressor is used; however this is usually only for short periods of time. The duration of noise is dependent on how many cracks are in need of maintenance on a given roadway.
PG&E Gas Main Upgrade on Sais Avenue 02/2017
Lansdale Avenue Traffic Calming Project Construction Postponed
The asphalt stamping and painting of five intersections on Lansdale Avenue in Fairfax and San Anselmo scheduled for November 7-11 has been postponed until warmer temperatures next Spring. We apologize for the delay, and will schedule the work as soon as the weather is conducive.
Gravel SweepingThe streets and associated dates are shown on the map below:
There will be no parking signs going up around town for a system wide gravel sweep. Since our slurried streets are rarely empty enough to properly sweep the parking lanes, we have decided that temporary no parking zones must be established to get a good clean sweep.

Bolinas Avenue/Sir Francis Drake Improvement Project
The Towns of Ross and San Anselmo are pleased to announce an upcoming federally-funded project to widen the sidewalk on Bolinas Avenue between Shady Lane and Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, and to enhance the bus stops on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at Bolinas Avenue.
The project consists of installing 10 new curb ramps, widening sidewalks, traffic signal improvements, and paving Sir Francis Drake Boulevard from 225 feet south of Winship Avenue to 230 feet north of the Bolinas Avenue intersection, as well as the Bolinas Avenue/San Anselmo Avenue intersection.
The concrete work will take about four weeks starting September 6. The work will take place during normal work hours (8 am to 5 pm weekdays), with work that requires traffic control limited to 9 am to 3 pm. The final paving work is tentatively scheduled for the week of October 3. The exact dates and times of paving work will be advertised a couple of weeks in advance.
The contractor will provide a pedestrian path-of-travel through the work site during construction. The bus stops will be temporarily relocated a short distance way. Marin Transit will post information about the relocated stops in advance of the work.
The Towns would like to thank you for your patience while we undertake this important project.
If you have any questions, please contact the project manager Scott Schneider, at 415-258-4653, or email@example.com.

Thank you for your patience and considerations during periods of road sealings. 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. "Slurry Seal Do's and Don'ts".
PAST PROJECTS - 2014
2014 Slurry Seal - Project "B"
The Town has contracted Ghilotti Construction with Bond Blacktop to perform the slurry seal project. Slurry sealing is an aggregate and emulsion coating applied to roads in good condition to prolong their life. The contractor is planning to preform the slurry seal on October 10th and October 14, 2014. Please note these dates and times are subject to change. The contractor will notify residents by posting a door hanger at effected properties.
The streets tentatively scheduled for this work are: Broadmoor Ave
The Alameda (Holstein to 241 The Alameda)
For street slurry schedule date and time here
To help us achieve a successful sealing here
Thank you for your patience while we coordinate the work.
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 Slurry Seal - Project "A" (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

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 Please contact the Town’s Project Manager by phone at (415) 258-4654 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. 2014 Capital Improvement Project Updates

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.
Please remember as you are working in your yard, no project is too small to call 811.
