When it comes to pavement maintenance, preserving and protecting the surface is crucial. Work is currently underway on the City’s annual Pavement Preventive Maintenance (PPM) program to seal the pavement surface on three high-traffic arterial streets in southeast Santa Rosa: Hoen Avenue, Bethards Drive, and Summerfield Road between Sonoma Avenue and Bethards Drive. During construction, through traffic will be maintained, however lanes will be reduced, and traffic controls will be in place, so delays are expected. The slurry seal application process is expected to be completed next week.

The PPM process involves sealing pavement cracks, performing localized asphalt repairs and removing all striping from the roadway, then applying a slurry seal treatment to help extend the life of the roadway. After the slurry has cured, roads within the project scope will be re-striped to add buffered bike lanes. In addition, both directions of Summerfield Road between Hoen Avenue and Bethards Drive will receive striping modifications to improve walking, biking, and driving facilities.
Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians are asked to observe all traffic controls in effect during construction activities.
