Innovative concrete paving project underway
Last Updated: 6/21/2017
Work to remove several asphalt streets and replace them with a concrete surface began mid-May. This new material is called roller compacted concrete and will be installed on the following streets. Please monitor roadside electronic message boards for updated information about any lane closures or detours. Typical work hours are Monday - Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Roller compacted concrete is new to most of California, but it has been successfully used for years in states like Texas and Kansas. It’s a durable road surface which can last 20–25 years without maintenance, while typical asphalt requires resurfacing every 7–10 years. The installation of roller compacted concrete cost about 20% less than asphalt. By using concrete instead of asphalt, we can better use our limited funding to repair more Roseville streets. This lighter colored surface also means cooler roads during the day and brighter roads at night.
