A close partnership with Travis Air Force Base has led to a creative collaboration between the City of Fairfield and Solano County. After hearing concerns about road conditions around one of the primary approaches to the air base, but lacking resources to rebuild the roadways, City of Fairfield officials coordinated with Solano County officials for a solution. A plan was quickly put into motion to work together to complete cost-effective chip seal applications to improve and extend the life of the roads.
Leveraging gas tax funds and city street crews, the City of Fairfield contracted with Solano County to utilize their specialized equipment and road crew to address both North Gate Road and Canon Road. Work is scheduled for September 11-14. Resurfacing is scheduled on September 11 and 12. Road striping should occur on September 13 and 14.
During the project, partial road closures and temporary traffic controls will be in effect 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Traffic will be subject to delays and will be slowed to below 25 mph with a pilot vehicle through the construction area. There will be loose gravel during the project and both roads will be swept at the end of the day and opened to traffic. Please plan ahead and use an alternate route, including the main gate or hospital gate to access Travis Air Force Base.
