Updated: 06/08/2017

Now that the slurry seal is cured, the City's contractors will start dimensioning and marking out (cat tracking) the pavement striping this Friday, June 9.

In order to mark the road, there will be no parking on Friday between 8am and 12pm on the westside of Duquesne Ave. and between 12pm and 4pm on the eastside of Duquesne Ave. On Thursday, June 8, "No Parking" signs will be posted with this information. These signs will be removed as soon as cat tracking is completed. 

The thermoplastic striping will be applied on Wednesday, June 14 and Thursday, June 15. It takes approximately 15 to 30 seconds for the striping to set. 

For additional information, please call Reny Quijano, Public Works Project Manager at (310) 253-5606, Darren Cook, Contractor Superintendent at (951) 736-7627, or Vern Nickerson, Construction Manager at (310) 916-3036.
