Motorists on the outskirts of Brentwood and Byron areas can expect some delays next week.
Maintenance crews will be placing a chip seal on some roads, which involves spraying liquid asphalt on the pavement, then spreading a layer of small aggregate rock so that it becomes embedded in the oil, according to a Contra Costa Public Works Department news release.
The majority of the work will occur between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Some sweeping of excess rock could take until 10 p.m., county officials said. Some Saturday work also may be required.
Work will be done on Camino Diablo between Vasco Road and Walnut Boulevard on Monday. On Tuesday, crews will work on Camino Diablo between Walnut and Marsh Creek Road and two stretches of Walnut and Longwell Avenue between Walnut and Camino Diablo.
Wednesday's work will be on Byron Highway from Byron Hot Springs Road to Holway Drive, and Thursday the crews will go from Holway to Taylor Lane.
Friday's work will be on Orwood Road between Byron Highway and the bridge over the slough.
Electronic message boards will advise motorists of planned work in advance. The speed limit through work zones will be 25 mph.
