6. Why didn't the contractor come on the day posted for "NO PARKING/NO DRIVING"?The contractor must post NO PARKING/NO DRIVING signs 48 hours in advance per contract with the City. The contractor places signs based on an average amount of material expected to be placed per day. Causes for delay may include but are not limited to:
A. Weather – Many street materials are temperature dependent and cannot be placed if the ambient temperature is below 50⁰F and if the ambient temperature is above 100⁰F because the material placed will not cure properly. The pavement temperature must be above 55⁰F for the material to adhere. These conditions may cause delays in starting or finishing the scheduled streets for the day.
B. Equipment Failure – The contractor is responsible for the maintenance and reliability of the equipment used to resurface streets. If equipment failure occurs, city staff works closely with the contractor to repair/replace equipment as soon as possible. This may cause delay, cancelation or rescheduling of selected streets.
C. Material Delivery – All materials placed on streets are delivered on a daily basis by truck to the contractor. Although the contractor’s objective is to get enough material for the scheduled streets, manufacturing plants are located outside Ventura County. Traffic plays a major role in the delivery process, which may cause delays, cancelation or rescheduling of scheduled streets.
D. Material Production – Material orders are placed in advance by the contractor for scheduled streets. The contractor relies on the manufacturing plant to produce sufficient material based on orders, which may cause the delay, cancelation or rescheduling of scheduled streets.
