Duarte, CA August 9, 2012 - A major street resurfacing project on Central Ave. and Royal Oaks Drive 
is scheduled to begin August 13, 2012 and anticipated to be completed in late August.

The Central Avenue resurfacing work will be from Highland Avenue to Bradbury Avenue. The Royal 
Oaks Drive resurfacing work will be from Highland Avenue to the City limits west of Buena Vista 
Street. The scope of work consists of the milling removal of the existing pavement, replacement of 
a pavement overlay section of Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix (ARHM), adjustments to the existing utility 
covers and replacement of all pavement stripping and markings.


The Duarte City Council awarded All American Asphalt of Corona a $425,000.00 contract funded 
with a combination of Proposition 1B, Measure R and Cal-Recycle Pavement Grant. The Cal-Recycle 
Pavement Grant will reimburse the City $66,080.00 for utilizing Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix (ARHM), 
through the use of “Green” technologies.


During construction periods, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on Central Avenue 
and Royal Oaks Drive. Motorists should expect detours and some traffic delays.


Residents or business owners within the construction areas will receive specific street closure dates 
and construction information at least 72 hours prior to the start of work. This street resurfacing 
project is essential in order to keep the preservation of the roadway in good condition. For more 
information, call the City of Duarte Community Development Department, Public Works Division 
at (626) 357-7931, extension 233.
