ENCINITAS — Encinitas is kicking off a serious major road repaving projects Monday as it resurfaces two of its major thoroughfares.
Crews will be removing the top five inches of pavement and replacing it with a slurry seal. City officials said the streets were chosen because of their degraded condition and because they are heavily traveled arterials within the city.
On Monday, crews will start work on El Camino Real from Mountain Vista Drive and Via Montero and Leucadia Boulevard from Piraeus Street to Saxony Drive.
The resurfacing is scheduled to last a month, and the majority of the work will occur between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. to avoid interrupting commutes.
The second and final phase of the project target several clusters of dilapidated residential streets, and is scheduled to begin in mid-October. The following streets will be affected:
Birmingham Drive, from Lake Drive to Crest Drive
Crest Drive, from Sprucewood Drive to 100 feet west of Horizon Drive
D Street, from Vulcan Avenue to San Dieguito Drive
E Street, from Second Street to Third Street
F Street, from Third Street to the west end (Removal and replacement of pavement in poor condition only. No overlay will be done on this street)
