Annual Slurry Seal Project: Zone D
Slurry Seal, Zone D: This project is part of the City’s Annual Slurry Seal Program funded through the CIP and includes localized pavement repairs, crack sealing and slurry sealing. Zone D includes the residential & commercial areas north of Lake Forest Drive and East of Trabuco and West of the SR-241 Toll Road. Click on the image to the right to view a map of all Slurry Seal Zone sites.
The contractor is currently completing localized pavement repairs and crack sealing. Notifications for the start of slurry sealing were sent out the week of August 14, with slurry operations beginning on Thursday, August 24. In order to minimize disruptions, slurry sealing will occur in residential areas on Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays, and in commercial areas on Saturdays and Sundays.
This schedule will allow the slurry more time to cure in advance of the weekly trash pickup on Wednesdays in this area. Slurry sealing usually requires residents and property owners to avoid driving on the street for approximately 8 hours. This project is expected to be completed by the end of September.
For any questions please contact Rina Adjoian Der Alexanian, Principal Engineer, (949) 461- 3490, or Douglas Erdman, Engineering Manager/Assistant City Engineer (949) 282-5233
Portola Center Development Project: Construction on Medians 3 and 4
As part of the Portola Center project, four raised medians are planned near the intersection of Glenn Ranch Road and Saddleback Ranch Road. The medians are designed to improve overall traffic safety while enhancing roadway beautification.
Median 1: Installation of the median on Glenn Ranch Road, west of Saddleback Ranch Road, is complete.
Median 2: Installation of the median on Saddleback Ranch Road closest to Glenn Ranch Road is complete.
Median 3: Construction of the median on Saddleback Ranch Road closest to Millwood Road will begin next week and is scheduled to be completed by September 2017. Construction activities on Saddleback Ranch Road impacting traffic will be limited to 9:00am until 4:30 pm.
Median 4: Construction of the median on Glenn Ranch Road, east of Saddleback Ranch Road, will begin next week. This work will require the closure of one of two left turn lanes from Saddleback Ranch Road to southbound Glenn Ranch Road and one of the southbound through lanes on Glenn Ranch Road. The construction will be limited to 9:00 am until 4:30 pm and is scheduled to be completed by end of August 2017.
To keep traffic moving, measures to minimize roadway and traffic impacts are required. These measures include: limiting work to non-peak hours, opening travel lanes during construction where possible, and adjusting traffic signal timing.
