Work on 14 miles of road surfacing and asphalt overlay projects is set to begin in the coming weeks as the Placer County Board of Supervisors took action Tuesday to approve three contracts totaling $6.14 million for road work and storm repair projects in more than 20 unincorporated Placer County locations.

Contracts approved include just over $2.4 million with All-American Construction for hot mix asphalt overlay projects on Eureka Road from Barton Road to Auburn-Folsom Road and Wellington Way to Barton Road in Granite Bay. The contract also covers projects in the Tahoe area on Alpine Meadows Road from Deer Park to Bear Creek Bridge and Olympic Valley Road from Russel Road to Christy Hill Road.

The second contract, for $729,535 with Pavement Coatings Co., will provide surface treatment projects for nearly 10 miles of road acoss 19 locations in unincorporated areas of Auburn, Meadow Vista and Colfax. 

A full list of locations of these projects can be found here. 

The third contract, for $3 million, is for storm damage repairs on Summer Star Way in Newcastle, which is the lone entrance and exit road for the Dream Ranch subdivision. During the 2022-23 winter storms a 200 foot corrugated metal pipe culvert washed out. The project will include reconstructing the culvert, headwalls, roadway embankment and 100 feet of pavement.

The county has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency reimbursement funding for the Summer Star Road repair project.
