Road work on Camino Tassajara

The Public Works Department will perform road work in Danville on Camino Tassajara, Collier Canyon Road and Highland between July 9 and Oct. 15 as part of Contra Costa County's Pavement Management Program. The schedule may vary depending on weather conditions. One lane of traffic will be kept open during the chip seal process.

The road work will include the application of a chip seal and a slurry seal to extend the life of the pavement. The chip seal surface consists of an application of liquid asphalt followed by "rock chips," ranging in size from 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch. About two to four weeks later, the slurry seal will be placed on top of that. The work will result in an improved driving surface with increased durability, and a waterproof layer to keep water from reaching underlying material, thereby preventing potholes.

Motorists cannot drive on the treatments until the lanes have been reopened to traffic, and then are cautioned to drive slowly because the pavement can be slippery due to loose rock. Bicyclists are also warned to be careful. For more information, call 313-7000.
