DPW Work for Week of January 29, 2018

SFDPW Hayes and Haight Street work 

Week of January 29, 2018

  • Crews will pour the concrete bus pads at the Hayes/Gough and Hayes/Buchanan intersection. As a reminder, once the concrete has been poured, the area will remain off-limits to vehicle traffic for 10 days while the concrete cures.
  • The contractor will continue street base repairs on Hayes Street between Steiner and Webster streets. It’s anticipated that later in the week the contractor will begin saw-cutting street base between Webster and Buchanan streets.
  • Crews will also continue curb ramp work at the Hayes/Buchanan and Hayes/Laguna intersections.

Grinding and Paving Schedule

Public Works is scheduled to begin grinding and paving operations along Hayes Street between Central Avenue and Scott Street. While crews remove the existing asphalt from the roadway (grinding phase),driveway access will be available however minor delays should be expected if crews are working on your block. However, during the paving phase, driveway access may not be available for 1-2 hours. The contractor will need to apply a tack coat (liquid asphalt) to the roadway in advance of the hot asphalt in order to promote bonding between the street base and asphalt. Once the tack coat has set, crews will begin applying the hot asphalt to the road. Crews will need to ensure the hot asphalt cools-down before allowing traffic on to it. During this time, driveway access may not be possible. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please allow extra travel time during grinding and paving operations.

The grinding and paving schedule is as follows:

  • Clayton Street to Masonic Avenue: Grind on Monday 2/5/2018 and repave on Tuesday 2/6/2018
  • Masonic Avenue to Lyon Street: Grind on Wednesday 2/7/2018 and repave on Thursday 2/8/2018
  • Lyon Street to Broderick Street: Grind on Monday 2/12/2018 and repave on Tuesday 2/13/2018
  • Broderick Street to Scott Street: Grind on Wednesday 2/14/2018 and repave on Thursday 2/15/2018

*** Please note that once the paving work is complete on a block, crews may return a few days later to adjust sewer and water castings flush with the road. This phase of work may require the contractor jack-hammer, adjust, and pave around the newly adjusted casting. This phase of work is typical during paving operations. ***

Haight Street

The contractor has wrapped up most of the contractual work along Lower Haight. The work that remains under the current contract is sidewalk work at the northwest and southeast bus stops at both Divisadero/Haight and also Fillmore/Haight. The contractor will also need to complete any punch list work along Haight Street between Central and Laguna streets. We’ll provide more details once the remaining work is scheduled.

Please Note: The construction schedule is subject to change due to rain, equipment breakdown, unforeseen field conditions, etc. Please see the posted “no parking” barricades for exact parking restrictions. Parking restrictions may vary per block.
