A nearly $600,000 project to refresh Rambouillet Road in Paso Robles is coming to an end.
The work, taking place between Niblick Road and Nicklaus Drive, began in late June and is slated to be complete by the end of this week. The top 6 inches of pavement are being ground out, re-laid and covered with fresh asphalt, according to the city. The project, designed to extend the life of pavement, also includes upgrading disabled access ramps to current state standards.
Photos from a site visit with city officials in mid-August showed crews working with the fresh overlay on the road.
The City Council in 2008 identified the east-side city street as needing work. The decision to fix the segment of Rambouillet Road was separate from the councils more recent decision to fix several main connector roads with revenue from the citys new voter-approved sales tax increase. The initial batch of fixes covers approximately 9.1 miles of road at a cost of $15 million through fiscal year 2016-17, according to the city.
The Rambouillet project was contracted by the city to CalPortland Co. in Santa Maria and is funded with state highway tax revenues that cities receive.
