Slurry Sealing of Various Streets - Mid Coast Area (County Project No. R8M00 - F36 [306A])



Adopt a resolution adopting Plans and Specifications, determining prevailing wage scales, and calling for sealed proposals for the Slurry Sealing of Various Streets in the Mid Coast.


Key Facts

The proposed slurry seal project is part of our overall pavement management program to maintain and improve the quality of the County's maintained road system.



The proposed project, totaling approximately 4.19 miles in length, consists of the repair of failed pavement areas, the slurry sealing (an application of sand and asphaltic emulsion) of the roadways, and the installation of pavement markings and legends. The roads to be slurry sealed are shown on the attached maps as Exhibit "A", and include:


El Granada - Avenue Alhambra, Avenue Granada, Carmel Avenue, Paloma Avenue, Sonora Avenue, and Valencia Avenue


Moss Beach - Admiral Street, Beach Street, Buena Vista Street, California Avenue, Comus Street, Coral Street, Ellendale Street, Kelmore Street, Nevada Avenue, Sierra Street, Stetson Street, Vermont Avenue, and Virginia Avenue


Miramar - Medio Avenue


The San Mateo County Planning Department has determined that this project is exempt:



from the requirements for preparation of an EIR pursuant to Section 15301(C) of the California Environmental Quality Act and we have filed a Notice of Exemption with the County Clerk in accordance with County guidelines.



from the requirement for a Coastal Development Permit and a Certificate of Exemption has been filed with the County Clerk in accordance with County guidelines.


Vision Alignment

We believe our recommendation is consistent with the Shared Commitment to "Ensure Basic Health and Safety for All" and Goal Number 7, "Maintain and Enhance the Public Safety of All Residents and Visitors," as the project maintains the surface of these roads for the benefit of the public.


Fiscal Impact

The estimated cost of construction is $118,000, and Road Funds were budgeted in Fiscal Year 2001-02 to finance this work. There is no impact to the General Fund.
