“This will be an intense resurfacing project for Placer County,” said Kevin Taber, manager of Placer County’s Road Maintenance Division. “It will be hectic for everybody for a while, but our roads will be smoother and safer for it.”

Construction crews with B&M Construction, contracted by Placer County, are currently applying surface treatments, which includes a slurry seal, rubberized chip seal, and paint striping. The work will make the roads safer for motorists and pedestrians.

Construction crews will return to install lighting improvements and signage at various project locations in April.
