Washington Avenue Pavement Rehabilitation
The City will repave Washington Avenue between San Pablo Avenue and Pomona Avenue, adopting a phased approach, as EBMUD will also rehabilitate aging water pipeline in the same area.
This work will completely reconstruct approximately 7,500 square yards of pavement. Other elements of the project include upgrading sidewalks and curb ramps for ADA compliance, replacing and enhancing green stormwater infrastructure, and updating pavement marking for bicycle and pedestrian traffic.
Design for the entire project is complete. In an effort to avoid project conflicts with EBMUD, Phase I of the project (San Pablo to Cornell; Masonic to Ramona Ave) will be constructed in Fall 2020. Pending EBMUD's pipeline replacement, Phase II (details) will be constructed in Fall 2021/Winter 2022.
In the interim, pothole repairs will be performed in the segment of Washington Avenue between Cornell Avenue and Masonic Avenue during Summer 2020.
