Street work in Nevada City to start Thursday

Several of Nevada City’s streets are scheduled for facelifts beginning Thursday, as the city wraps up the last of its seasonal road repairs.

Paving is scheduled for parts of North Pine Street, Sacrament Street, Jordan Street, Gold Flat Road and Gold Tunnel Drive, all slated to be completed by Nov. 2.

The majority of the work will involve grinding and grading the pavement, followed by the laying of new pavement, said Bill Falconi, the city’s engineer.

Paving of the streets will begin Oct. 29 and is expected to last until Nov. 2. Falconi cautioned drivers to expect road closures during this period.

This last batch of roadwork, which began in July, marks the culmination of this year’s estimated $400,000 worth of expenditures of Measure S funding, a 16-year program enacted by voters in 2006 to fund road maintenance, Falconi said.
