2013-city-of-santa-maria-logo-colorDrivers are advised that temporary, short delays will occur due to road work on various City streets beginning Tuesday, June 20th. The most notable streets include Betteravia Road from Broadway (State Highway 135) to A Street, College Drive from Sunrise to McCloud, and McCoy Lane from Broadway to Blosser Road.

VSS International, under contract with the City, will place a micro-surface roadway treatment designed to prolong the life of paved roadways.  Once the treatment is placed, traffic must remain off of the treated portion of the roadway until the micro-surface material has cured.  This generally takes 20 to 30 minutes depending on weather conditions.  Once the material is cured, the contractor will open the roadway to traffic.

Driving on the treated roadway surface before the contractor opens the roadway to traffic can result in damage to the surface treatment as well as to vehicles.  City staff strongly recommends that drivers obey all temporary construction signs and reduce driving speeds in construction areas.

The driving public may experience delays during construction.  It is recommended to use alternate routes whenever possible to avoid delays.
