DPW Grinding and Paving Schedule

Week of February 5, 2018

– The contractor has begun grinding and paving operations along Hayes Street between Clayton Street and Webster Street. The grinding and paving schedule is as follows:

  • 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
  • Scott Street to Steiner Street: Grind on Monday 2/19/2018 and repave on Tuesday 2/20/2018
  • Steiner Street to Webster Street: Grind on Wednesday 2/21/2018 and repave on Thursday 2/22/2018

During the grinding phase (removal of existing asphalt from roadway), driveway access will be available however minor delays should be expected if crews are working on your block. Please allow extra travel time.


However, during the paving phase, driveway access may be unavailable for 1-2 hours. The contractor will apply a tack coat (liquid asphalt) in advance of the hot asphalt to promote bonding between the concrete street base and the hot asphalt. Once the tack coat has set, crews will begin applying the hot asphalt to the roadway. Crews will need to ensure the hot asphalt cools-down prior to allowing traffic on to it. During this time, driveway access may not be possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please note, a few days after the paving work is complete on a block, crews will return to adjust castings flush with the road. This scope of work will require the contractor jack-hammer, adjust, and pave around the newly adjusted casting. This phase of work is typical during paving operations.

– This week, crews also continue curb ramp work at the Hayes/Buchanan and Hayes/Laguna intersections.

– The contractor continues saw-cutting additional blocks along Hayes Street (Fillmore to Van Ness) in advance of upcoming street base repairs. The saw-cutting operations will take approximately 2 days to complete on a block but could be delayed due to rain or unforeseen field conditions.

Week of February 12, 2018

Grinding and paving operations will continue on Hayes Street. Crews are scheduled to grind and pave Hayes Street between Lyon and Scott streets.

– Crews will continue street base repairs on Hayes Street. During this phase of work, crews will use heavy machinery to remove the broken sections of street base and replace them with fresh concrete. The street base repair schedule will be as follows:

  • Hayes Street (Fillmore to Webster): Monday 2/12 and Tuesday 2/13
  • Hayes Street (Webster to Buchanan): Tuesday 2/14 and Wednesday 2/15
  • Hayes Street (Buchanan to Laguna): Friday 2/16 and Monday 2/19
  • Hayes Street (Laguna to Octavia): Tuesday 2/20 and Wednesday 2/21
  • Hayes Street (Octavia to Gough): Thursday 2/22 and Friday 2/23
  • Hayes Street (Gough to Franklin): Monday 2/26 through Wednesday 2/28
  • Hayes Street (Franklin to Van Ness): Thursday 3/1 and Friday 3/2

The contractor will need to schedule street base re-construction work at both the Hayes/Gough and Hayes/Franklin intersections. The street base repair work at these two intersections will be quite extensive. More details to be provided once the work is scheduled.

– On Friday February 16, 2018, the contractor is targeting to complete paving work that remains on Scott Street, just south of the Haight Street intersection. This very small section of paving should be of minimal inconvenience.

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.


*** 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. ***
