For the Annual Street Repair and Resurfacing Project, all the rubber cape seal and slurry seal work for the year was completed on Monday, October 12.
Work items remaining are permanent striping and raising/adjusting of utilities to grade. Temporary pavement markings were installed until the permanent thermoplastic striping can be installed after seven days of the resurfacing work.
Along Winchester Boulevard from Blossom Hill Road to Albright Way, where new Class IV bikeways with green bollards will be installed, the Town will allow the contractor to install the permanent striping at night between 9 PM to 5 AM on Sunday, October 17 to Friday, October 22. Due to the complexities and large quantities of thermoplastic striping involved for the Class IV bikeway, nighttime work is being authorized to faster installation (five to six work days at night versus ten work days during the day). Nighttime work will also minimize traffic delays and impacts for the public. Minimal noise interruptions could be anticipated with the striping work.
The Winchester Class IV Bikeway project is part of the Connect Los Gatos program and will improve safety for people walking, biking, and driving along the corridor.
