Carbon Canyon Road Paving Starts Monday, 18 June!

As noted before, the completion of the water pipe system renovations along Carbon Canyon Road on the Brea portion of the state highway is to be quickly followed by the repaving of the thoroughfare by CalTrans.

As explained in a notice posted by the department, the $1.6 million project will be conducted on a four-mile stretch of SR-142 from Brea Hills Road (at the east end of the Olinda Ranch subdivision, where the four-lane portion of Carbon Canyon Road narrows to two lanes) to the San Bernardino County line.

Contractor All-American Asphalt will grind the existing road surface in both directions and then apply a new layer of asphalt/concrete, as well as complete other work to the highway.

Work commences next Monday, 18 June and will be occur overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday.  In addition, there is a tentative schedule for All-American to conduct work on four consecutive weekends from 14 July to 4 August from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  The work is expected to be completed in late September.

Even though the project will take three months and will involve regular lane closures, the fact that work will be done overnight will certainly mitigate the kind of delays found in daylight work, though the department advises that delays could last up to 30 minutes.  Those drivers who enjoy employing high speeds on the curves of the state highway will have to modify that routine on weekdays and on the aforementioned weekends, though any weekend before 14 July and after 4 August would appear to be fair game.
