A construction contract was awarded to California Professional Engineering Inc. at the January 10, 2023, City Council Meeting. The project is expected to start construction in April 2023 and be completed in 6 months.
Construction activities include heavy equipment, traffic control, lane closures, and will temporarily impact parking and traffic signal operation. Some construction activities will impact noise levels, such as during potholing and installation of new couduit. Construction activities will be scheduled to minimize impacts, where feasible. Construction message boards will be placed 2 weeks prior to the start of the project to provided information needed to accommodate parking conditions and traffic circulation on the Boulevard.
The California Professional Engineering will be issuing a notice of construction with more information and contact information two weeks and two days prior to start of construction activities.
