Marin Avenue Construction
In May, City Council awarded a construction contract to Bay Pacific Pipeline for the 2020 Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project. This project is anticipated to start in late June. A substantial portion of this work will occur in Marin Avenue. The project will reach from San Pablo Avenue to Tulare Street. Construction will be limited to approximately two blocks at a time. Parking will be impacted in areas around active construction but two way traffic and cycle access will remain open.
Please see the project location map for construction phasing and schedule.
Adams Street Pavement Rehabilitation
City Council has approved a Call for Bids for the Adams Street Pavement Rehabilitation Project. This work will completely reconstruct approximately 2,555 square yards of pavement from Solano Avenue to Buchanan Street.
Staff estimates that the construction contract will be awarded in July, for construction in late Summer 2020. Click here for a map of the project location.
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 will be constructed in Fall 2021/Winter 2022. See figure for details.
In the interim, pothole repairs will be performed in the segment of Washington Avenue between Cornell Avenue and Masonic Avenue during Summer 2020.
Albany Hill Access Improvements
The Albany Hill Access Improvements project has been largely completed as of end of May 2020, with further information on the project's completion coming soon.
The City’s monarch butterfly expert, Dr. Stewart Weiss from Creekside Science, visited the site on November 5th and confirmed that construction activities have conformed to the design recommendations to protect Monarch habitat. The inspection report is available here.
