Overview

Over the last several years, the City has been planning the Bungalow Avenue resurfacing project. This project consists of the resurfacing, drainage improvements, a sidewalk gap closure, and pedestrian safety upgrades on Bungalow and Woodland Avenue.

Phase I

During the development of the Bungalow Avenue resurfacing project, the San Rafael Sanitation District (SRSD) was simultaneously developing a sewer main replacement of Woodland Avenue which consequently was on the City’s resurfacing list. To partner with other government agencies the City is working with SRSD to provide freshly resurfaced roadway after the sewer main replacement is completed. The resurfacing on Woodland Avenue is currently projected to begin Monday, February 21st, during Mid-Winter break for the local schools.

Phase II

After concrete spot repairs along the Bungalow Ave loop have been completed, the City’s contractor Precision Concrete Cutting will shave offsets along the entire loop.  This phase of work is projected to take 2-3 weeks and access for vehicles and pedestrians will be allowed during this time.

Phase III

After a very insightful site walk with the community, the City is reviewing the feasibility of widening the lower Bungalow Ave section between Woodland Ave and Picnic Ave.  This project phase would seek to remove steep gutters in the area to improve both vehicle and pedestrian access.  Currently in the design phase, this project is anticipated to go begin construction Summer 2022.

Construction Schedule

The construction schedule is from Monday to Friday 7 am to 5 pm.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Please note that after a roadway receives rehabilitation, it will be added to the City’s moratorium list, which states that “no excavation shall be permitted in any portion of public right-of-way that was constructed or resurfaced until the pavement condition index (PCI) drops below a 70/100.” The City enforces a policy of full width restoration of any excavation on streets with a PCI of 70 or above.
