Document Description
Reconstructing and resurfacing of Lerdo Highway between State Route 99 and approximately 850 feet east of the east boundary of Driver Road. The resurfacing and reconstructing of existing traffic lanes located wholly within the City street right-of-way. No work will occur within the State right-of-way. Planned work includes milling up to four inches of pavement and repaving the roadway at various locations on Lerdo Highway. Work between the east boundary of the project and Gate 3 of Shafter-Minter Field Airport (approximately 250 feet west of the midsection line of Section 17, T28S, R26E, MDB&M) may include complete removal and reconstruction of the roadbed in both the eastbound and westbound lanes. Reconstruction work, where needed, will include recompaction of the subgrade, installation of aggregate base, and asphalt paving. No portion of the reconstruction work will occur outside the City right-of-way. Collected grindings will be used toward road shoulder stabilization within eight feet of the existing edge of pavement. Any excess grindings will become the property of the contractor and will be properly disposed of or recycled. Work will not be performed in the following locations: within the west-bound left-turn lane from Lerdo Highway onto Zerker Road, within the Zerker Road/Lerdo Highway intersection, between Carver Street and Carsen Way south of the 24-foot east-bound travel lanes, and at the realigned entrance to Shafter-Minter Field Airport at the Carver Street/North American Street intersection with Lerdo Highway. Equipment will be staged on APN's 091-171-30 and -31, located on the south side of Lerdo Highway, approximately 300 feet west of Zerker Road. The equipment staging area is completely enclosed by an existing fence and no portion of the fencing will be removed or relocated as a result of the project.
