Road work ahead tiny - Paving in Belwood of Los GatosFor the last week or two, road construction crews have been busy in the Belwood of Los Gatos, Surmont and Belgatos neighborhoods (and other parts of east Los Gatos too). We have received notices on our front porch about road closures, paving dates for various roads and when we can and cannot park on the streets.

As the roadwork began, first the manhole covers were reworked.  That involved removing the paving immediately adjacent to each one, which was a loud job.  Next crosswalks were rubbed out  of existence by a noisy grinding machine, bots dots got scraped away, several stretches of sidewalks and driveways were pulverized into large chunks of concrete (seemed onto to happen where the driveway went over the sidewalk for some reason).
