The City of Patterson was awarded funds from the Department of Resouces Recycling and Recovery (CalRecyle) through their Rubberized Pavement Grant Program, Grant No. TRP 10-18-0073. This program encourages recycling and reduces waste by requiring Grantees to utilize California generated recycled tire waste materials in the form of Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Hot-Mix or Rubberized Chip Seal. The funds from this grant were used for the Las Palmas Overlay Project. The City estimated that it would utilize a total of 2,277 tons of Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Hot-Mix. One thousand eight hundred and twenty-one tons were utilized; 4,439 were passenger tire equivalents (PTES) diverted.
The Las Palmas Overlay Projectis located along Las Palmas Avenue from Highway 33 to the east end of the City limits (approximately 3,200 linear feet of road). Prior to overlaying the existing road, any pavement surface with severe conditions was excavated and reconstructed with Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Hot-Mix (aggregate base and asphalt concrete). The Rubberized Hot-Mix was utilized on East Las Palmas Overlay from 699 East of North Hartley through North First Street and on Poppy Avenue from Clover Avenue through South Del Puerto. Improvements also included the reconstruction of curb ramps and crosswalks that did not meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards, installation of a new sewer main, laterals, and manholes, replacement of existing water services and fire hydrants, replacement of existing storm drain pipe and inlets, replacement of existing detector loop and the adjustment of existing manholes and valve covers to finished grade.
This project was presented to City Council on March 15, 2022, and accepted as complete by Council.
