The City of Patterson is pleased to announce that the City has been awarded funds from the Department of Resouces Recycling and Recovery (CalRecyle) through their Rubberized Pavement Grant Program, Grant No. TRP 10-18-0073. This program encourages recycling and reduces waste by requiring Grantees to utilize California generated recycled tire waste materials in the form of Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Hot-Mix or Rubberized Chip Seal. The funds from this grant will be distributed between two projects: The Las Palmas Overlay Project and the Kinshire Water Replacement and Street Full-depth Reconstruction Project. Between the two projects, the City estimates that it will utilize a total of 4,428 tons of Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Hot-Mix.
The Las Palmas Overlay Projectis located along Las Palmas Avenue from Highway 33 to the east end of the City limits (approximately 3,200 linear feet of road). Prior to overlaying the existing road, any pavement surface with severe conditions will be excavated and reconstructed with Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Hot-Mix (aggregate base and asphalt concrete). The Rubberized Hot-Mix will be utilized on East Las Palmas Overlay from 699 East of North Hartley through North First Street and on Poppy Avenue from Clover Avenue through South Del Puerto. Improvements will also include, reconstruction of curb ramps and crosswalks that do not meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards, installation of new sewer main, laterals, and manholes, replacement of existing water services and fire hydrants, replacement of existing storm drain pipe and inlets, replacement of existing detector loop and the adjustment of existing manholes and valve covers to finished grade.
