Perusing bid notices in the Daily Journal of Commerce, we happened onto the advertisement for bids on the Fauntleroy Way repaving project, published last week. It’s been described all along as stretching from SW Alaska to California Avenue SW, provided full funding for that stretch could be found – but now it looks like they’re bidding for work to continue several blocks south/west of California SW – here’s an excerpt:
PROJECT LOCATION: Fauntleroy Way SW – SW Alaska St to SW Holly St
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Work includes concrete panel replacement, pavement removal, pavement base repair, asphalt planing, HMA resurfacing, drainage improvements, striping, traffic loops and other miscellaneous work
This project includes an Additive Alternate Bid as follows:
Work on Fauntleroy Way SW south of the California Avenue SW intersection which includes concrete panel replacement, pavement removal, pavement base repair, asphalt planing, HMA resurfacing, drainage improvements, striping, traffic loops and other miscellaneous work.
ESTIMATE: The Engineer’s Estimate for this Project is $3,900,000 to $4,700,000.
Again, the full bid advertisement can be seen here. We have a message in to SDOT to ask about the added stretch, including whether any rechannelization is to be done in that section; most recent estimate for the start of work was May. ADDED 3:43 PM: Here’s the response from Rick Sheridan at SDOT; our question was as follows: Does this mean they did secure funding for the entire Alaska-California stretch (which was not a sure bet a while back), and if it stretches to Holly, is any reconfiguration planned for those added blocks?:
SDOT fully expects to pave Fauntleroy Way SW from SW Alaska Street to California Avenue SW. If the bids are favorable, we may be able to further improve the road by exercising an option to pave between California Avenue SW and SW Holly Street. Fauntleroy from California Avenue SW to SW Holly Street features one lane in each direction and a center turn lane, and no changes are planned from its current configuration.
