Toro Enterprises, Inc. will be performing paving work on several City streets as part of the FY21B Pavement Maintenance (Overlay) Project.

Paving operations will begin the week of July 25, 2022, and last approximately two weeks.

Pavement striping of the newly paved streets will follow approximately 2-3 weeks after all paving work is complete.

The following streets will receive full-width pavement grind followed by asphalt pavement overlay:

  Castillo Street from Carrillo Street to Haley Street – July 25 - 27

  Fairview Overpass from Highway 101 to City Limit – Tentatively July 28 - 29 (night work only)

  Mission Street from Modoc Road to Highway 101 Underpass – Tentatively Week of August 8

  Chapala Street from Mission Street to Sola Street – Tentatively Week of August 15

  Micheltorena Street from Highway 101 to Garden Street – Tentatively Week of August 22

  Arrellaga Street from Bath Street to Anacapa Street – Tentatively Week of August 29

The schedule of work is approximate and is subject to change as weather, material supply and other factors may influence the exact timing of construction.

Detours in the surrounding areas will be in effect to minimize construction duration and ensure the least disruption to normal traffic flow. Traffic control, parking restrictions and temporary delays should be expected in these areas. Access will be maintained for residents and businesses, although temporary disruptions should be anticipated, especially while paving is taking place.

No Parking signs will be posted at least 72 hours prior to construction and detour signs will also be provided.

The City has contracted with Toro Enterprises, Inc. to perform work, which is funded primarily by Measure C.

Why does the city subcontract with Toro? they bought all brand new paving equipment , hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth a couple years ago. Then they spent thousands and thousands training their employees on how to use it

It's a private company, they can invest their money however they want and new equipment and training is probably the best option possible. With paving, going for the lowest bid with cheap labor, materials, and equipment ends up being more expensive in the long-run.
