$1 million street maintenance project starts Monday

A $1 million street sealing project, part of a maintenance program that more than doubles the life of Lodi’s asphalt roadways, is scheduled to begin Monday, July 21. More than a dozen city streets, including the major north-south roadways of Ham Lane and Mills Avenue and Crescent Avenue, will be included in the project. Nearly 28 acres of pavement will be treated.

Roads will remain open, although delays are possible, during the first step of the rubberized cape seal application as work crews embed fine gravel into a layer of oil sprayed onto the pavement. The next step, scheduled to begin Thursday, July 24 and finish July 29, requires road closures of at least five hours. The process involves applying a slurry with even smaller rock to seal the first layer. New road striping will be applied a week or more afterward.

The closure of Ham Lane between Lodi Avenue and Kettleman Lane will be on Saturday, July 26, to minimize disruption to businesses and professional offices. Visitors may access most of the affected Ham Lane addresses from side streets.

Roadwork in front of Millswood Middle School, Lodi Middle School and Leroy Nichols Elementary School will be completed before school opens July 28.

Lodi’s Public Works Department will sweep streets frequently over the next several weeks to remove the gravel that comes loose from the oil layer or slurry.

Motorists are asked to follow these measures to allow street crews to perform the best job possible and keep workers and property safe:

  • Drive slowly. The speed limit in the construction zone is 15 mph.

  • Do not drive on treated streets until lanes have reopened to traffic.

  • Do not park your car on treated roads until an initial street sweeping is completed.
