City of Santa Maria Pavement Repairs Project
Drivers are advised that temporary delays will occur on various streets in Santa Maria during to the City’s Pavement Repairs Project beginning Monday, September 18thand continuing through the end of January 2024.  It is recommended to use alternate routes when possible.
The project will include the removal and replacement of old and failed asphalt paving, removal of existing traffic striping, grinding of the edges of the existing pavement, the placement of hot mix asphalt overlay, then re-establishment of traffic striping. The City is contracting  V. Lopez Jr & Sons, Inc. to perform this $4 million project funded by Measure A, Gas Tax, and SB-1 Gas Tax dollars.
Having safe, well-maintained roads is a top priority for the City, which knows how important it is to our residents and infrastructure. As one of its Smart City, Safe City programs, the Department of Public Works diligently tracks the Pavement Condition Index (PCI) to assess the condition of streets. Based on available funds, including tax revenue from gas purchases, staff conducts annual assessments and develops road projects.
The streets that are part of the project include:

  • Suey Road from Main Street to Donovan Road
  • Main Street from Palisade Drive to North Suey Road
  • Betteravia Road from ‘A’ Street to City Limit near Highway 101
  • Intersection of Cook Street and McClelland Street
  • Jones Street from College Drive to Concepcion Avenue
  • Bradley Road from E. Main Street to Columbia Drive
  • Depot Street from Fesler Street to Main Street
  • Railroad Avenue from Donovan Road to Fesler Street
  • Blosser Road From Donovan Road to Betteravia Road
  • Carlotti Drive from Noble Way to Donovan Road
The first phase of work will begin on September 18th on Suey Road from Main Street to Donovan Road and on East Main Street from Palisade Drive to North Suey Road. This work will consist of asphalt dig-outs along this section of Suey Road and full removal and replace of the asphalt on this section of Main Street. This work on Suey Road and Main Street will take approximately two weeks, with subsequent street repair phases taking place through January. The contractor will post construction notices to residents and businesses along affected streets with the dates, when parking and access to streets will be prohibited. 
City staff recommends that drivers obey all temporary construction signs and reduce driving speeds in construction areas. The City appreciates drivers’ cooperation and patience.
