Project Update

A new hot mix asphalt overlay has been applied to the project area. The potholes at the intersection of 11th and California Way have been eliminated. New pedestrian curb ramps have been constructed and a new bikeway helps prevent vehicle-cyclist conflict improving safety at the intersection. New striping and other pavement markings have been applied. 

 

Work remains on the new signal components. Due to extended material lead times, expect those to be installed later this winter.
