2020 HA5 street project

Post Date:04/03/2020 3:15 PM

The 2020 HA5 street maintenance project will begin next week.

HA5 is an effort to change the city’s focus from a reactive/repair-focused operation, to a proactive/preservation operation. Not every roadway is a candidate for the HA5 method, its primary target are roads that have minimal wear and cracking. The primary function of HA5 does two things:
 
- Seals the roadway to prevent penetration of water into the road’s base.
- The product acts like a sunscreen, which protects the road from oxidation from the sun’s UV light.
 

Click here to view the maps of the selected areas (4-21-20).

Some key points:

  • Once HA5 is applied, it cannot be driven on for 24 hours. We ask residents to give consideration to their neighbors that may be displaced during the cure time and park in their driveways so their neighbors can park on the street.
  • Once HA5 is applied and a vehicle is parked in a driveway, they won’t be able to leave until the product cures and the area is opened to traffic. Roads are closed at 8 a.m., so residents have time to leave or repark their vehicles before the road is shut down.
  • We know the 24-hour cure time is an inconvenience. But we hope the benefit of HA5 over sealcoat (8 years of cleaner, quieter, less aggressive to walk on, maintains aesthetic color) will outweigh that short inconvenience.
  • Andale will have a shuttle service to carry residences from their vehicle to their home if necessary.
  • Residents will see work beginning on Friday, April 10.

I’ve also attached the towing notification residents are getting as well. Some key points on the towing notification:

  • Residents cannot access the street for only the 24 hours that HA5 is applied in front of their home - not for the full 18 days stated on the flyer.

If a vehicle is parked on the street during the application time, Home Motors will tow it out of the construction zone, and then place it back in the original location after the HA5 cures. The City will pay for all tows.
