Road-smoothing project to be done by early September

Berkeley, California (Monday, July 21, 2008) - CalTrans will be making improvements to Ashby Avenue in an extensive rehabilitation project beginning the week of July 20, 2008.

The Ashby Avenue project will improve road conditions from Telegraph Avenue to Tunnel Road and  will be done by early September, according to CalTrans. Several things to be aware of during this time:

It is necessary to grind out the existing broken pavement to facilitate the repairs.  For safety purposes, work vehicles are required to use back-up alarms while conducting this work. We apologize in advance for the noise generated by this operation. Please excuse us as we work to improve your road.

Please remember to proceed cautiously when driving through construction zones. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we perform this much needed rehabilitation work along Ashby Avenue.
If you have questions or concerns on this or any other Caltrans-sponsored project, please contact CalTrans Public Affairs at or (510) 286-6445.
