2013 Pavement Repair Project - General Information

General Information:
This year's Pavement Repair Project is Phase I and will include preventative maintenance treatments on 105 street segments. Phase I repairs include localized patches, crack sealing, asphalt rubber cape seal, microsurfacing, and refreshing striping. Phase II in 2014 will address streets in poor condition that will need rehabilitation. Phase III in 2015 will focus more on streets in very poor condition that need reconstruction.   For more information about the repairs, please see our FAQ below.

The Town of Moraga received grant funding of $126,000 from the California Department of Resources Recycling and recovery (CalRecyle). The rubber used in the rubberized chip seals and microsurfacing in the 2013 Pavement Repair Project will divert a total of 10,000 tires from going to California landfills or stockpiles. 
Prior to costruction, please expect :
  • A notice from the Town to all affected residents regarding the upcoming work 1 to 2 weeks before construction begins.
  • Please pay close attention to signs on and around your street indicating when street closures may occur and plan accordingly.
During Construction, please expect:
  • Initial repairs include crack sealing, localized patches on failed asphalt, and minor curb and gutter repairs.
  • Street closures may occur any time between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
  • Please do not park or drive on streets if construction signage indicates that the street will be closed.
  • Please observe temporary posted speed signs (typically 15 MPH).
  • To avoid tracking asphalt onto your driveways and property, please pay attention to contractor signage and wait until the street has been cleared for access.
