Green Valley paving work to move forward

By From page A3 | December 07, 2012

FAIRFIELD — Recent storms have passed, sunny weather is forecast and Fairfield is ready to resume its schedule for repaving Mangels Boulevard and Green Valley Road.

It planned to do the job last week, but more than 4 inches of rain in a series of strong storms washed out that idea.

The National Weather Service is forecasting sunny, clear days through Wednesday with temperatures in the low 60s. Fairfield Public Works Inspector Chris Chan said he wants to take advantage of this opportunity to get the job done.

Repaving work will be done from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. in coming days, with striping and other work being done from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Workers won’t pave every lane of a street at one time.

“There will be through traffic at all work sites,” Chan said.

Workers are to repave using the following schedule, weather permitting:

  • Friday, Green Valley Road from Mangels Boulevard to Westlake Drive.
  • Saturday, Mangels Boulevard from Vintage Valley Drive toward Green Valley Road.
  • Monday, remaining work on Mangels Boulevard between Vintage Valley Drive and Green Valley Road.
  • Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Mangels Boulevard from Green Valley Road to Westamerica Drive.

Ongoing improvements on Green Valley Road and Mangels Boulevard and recently completed improvements on Travis Boulevard cost about $1.37 million.

Work includes grinding several inches of pavement off and replacing it with rubberized asphalt. Edge drains have been installed along Green Valley Road and Mangels Boulevard to prevent clay soils under the roads from swelling and damaging pavement.
