Some of the discussion and questions following yesterday’s update on the Fauntleroy Way repaving project — which has now moved on to the California/Fauntleroy intersection — was noticed by SDOT, so Marybeth Turner has sent us this explanation to share:
There are three different types of repair work happening on Fauntleroy.
On the west side, SDOT is replacing some of the most damaged concrete panels. This is what crews have been doing most recently from north to south. This reconstruction began on June 22, and is expected to last five days (weather permitting). The west side doesn’t have an asphalt surface like the center and east side. The concrete work on the south side of the intersection will begin on July 6 and also is expected to last five days.
In a few weeks, crews will begin working on the east side of the street, grinding off the old asphalt, then replacing sections of concrete. (This part of the street has a concrete base with an asphalt overlay.) The east side will progress from south to north.
Finally, in the last phase, crews will completely rebuild the center section of the road (middle two lanes) working from north to south. The resurfacing (asphalt) on the east and center sections will happen towards then end of the project in September. The rechannelization (lane markings) will be installed after the paving has been completed.

Here’s the official city project page, which also explains the “rechannelization,” if you missed all our previous coverage dating back to first word last November that it was being proposed.
