Roseville to Tahoe: Over 1,000 Miles of Road Maintenance




The Placer County Department of Public Works (DPW) provides road maintenance and repair services on 1,000+ miles of public roadways within unincorporated Placer County from Roseville to Tahoe.

DPW maintains roadway signs, striping, and traffic signals and provides roadside tree and vegetation control and emergency roadway hazard response. DPW also provides snow removal service on 235 miles of roadway in eastern Placer County.

Each summer, DPW performs surface treatments on maintained public roadways to protect, preserve, and extend their useful lives. The road resurfacing processes provide a new wearing surface, limited crack filling, pavement rejuvenation, and sealing.

At the July 8, 2014 meeting of the Placer County Board of Supervisors the Board awarded a construction contract to the lowest "responsible and responsive" bidder, Telfer Highway Technologies, for the resurfacing and treatment of roadways throughout central Placer County. This year's project will cover approximately 24 miles of roadway using a variety of surfacing treatments, including a microsurfacing seal, fiberized microsurfacing seal, chip seal, and cape seal. The surface treatments used for this project are durable and provide a cost-effective way to seal, protect and ultimately prolong the life of Placer County roadways.

Kevin Taber, Engineering Manager of Placer County's Road Maintenance Division, said the project is set to begin in early August of this year. Residents who will be affected by the project, which will mainly target roadways in North Auburn, Bowman, Meadow Vista, Applegate, and Weimar, were notified by mail in mid-June, and were provided details about how the project could impact them. Such impacts include parking restrictions, loose material on roadways, and tree trimming in advance of the project start date. The selection of roads for surface treatment is typically based on the condition of the road, traffic volumes, and funding.

"We try to make every effort to minimize impacts to residents; however some impacts and inconveniences are unavoidable," Kevin Taber said. "It is our hope that by sending out the notification letter far in advance of the project start date we will help residents begin to plan for the construction time frames."
