PCC Patching

2020 PCC Patching Project

The three locations where extensive patching will be done on existing pavement are the bridge approaches on 73rd Street as the road crosses Walnut Creek, the outside southbound lane on the 900 block of 73rd Street near the entrance to the YMCA, and the intersection of 70th Street and Hickman Road south towards Wilshire Blvd. The pavement at these locations has deteriorated badly and is in need of patchwork. Public Works staff has spent considerable time filling potholes on these three stretches of road over the last five years. Plans for this project are still being put together and will be presented to the City Council in February. Construction is expected to happen any time during the 2020 construction season.
