6 weeks of Improvements on 10th Street Beginning; Old Asphalt to be Recycled
2013-05-15 · By Editor
The City of Long Beach will begin work this week on a pavement rehabilitation project along 10th Street between Redondo and Ximeno avenues.
“This project is yet another example of how Long Beach is investing in its infrastructure, which helps Long Beach’s businesses and residents in the long run,” Mayor Bob Foster said.
“Improving our City’s streets and sidewalks is one of my highest priorities,” said Councilmember Gary DeLong, who represents the 3rd District. “The surrounding community is looking forward to a repaved street, improved curbs and gutters, trimmed trees and other infrastructure improvements.”
Additional features of the project include: installing pavement markers, bus pads, markings, traffic striping, signing and curb paint; and installation of traffic signal conduit.
“An estimated 12,000 tires will be recycled into rubberized asphalt for this project, which will provide several benefits, including reduces road noise,” said Councilmember Patrick O’Donnell, who represents the 4th District. “In addition, all the old asphalt material will be recycled into new asphalt or utilized as base material on other street projects.”
The work is scheduled to continue for approximately 6 weeks. The $1.1 million dollar project will be financed primarily with Proposition C funds.
Traffic control will be in place to provide safety for motorists and workers. Lane closures will be required during construction, and while the roads will stay open during working hours, motorists can expect some traffic delays. Therefore, motorists are encouraged to use alternative routes, when possible.
