On Monday August 1st and Tuesday August 2nd, Orange County Public Works performed what is known by pavement experts as an a/c grind and overlay: a new fresh top coat of asphalt to the rest of us laypersons!
This was a project our Chamber of Commerce asked for in 2021 and OCPW was able to incorporate as part of the larger south Antonio Parkway project that will provide the same treatment from the Covenant Hills gate entrance at Antonio Parkway, through Rancho Mission Viejo, down to Ortega Highway set to start on Monday, August 8th. The majority of the work will occur at night.
The work on Daisy Street refreshes the top layer, which should be good for another 20 years. The Chamber thanks Orange County Public Works and 5th District Supervisor Lisa Bartlett and her team for a job very well done!
Street maintenance is an ongoing effort as the community has passed its 22nd birthday with much of the original construction still intact, but showing its age.
Several other streets are getting close to needing refreshes as well including Crown Valley Parkway, Windmill, Dorrance, Cecil Pasture and Sellas. We will continue to provide the community with updates!
