2016 Paving Projects Moving Forward

At the May 3, 2016 regular City Council meeting, the Council approved authorization to advertise and solicit bids in one contract for the 2016 Annual Pavement Project and the 2016 Measures J & L Pavement Rehabilitation Project. 

A list of streets and necessary treatments were reviewed by staff and the Citizens Infrastructure Oversight Commission (CIOC) prior to City Council approval. The CIOC recommended to the City Council a list of roads to be rehabilitated under the 2016 Annual Pavement Rehabilitation Project and the 2016 Measure J & L Pavement Rehabilitation Project. The City Council approved this list on October 6, 2015.

Construction is expected to commence in the summer of 2016. For details on the current paving project (2015) and future paving projects (2016 & 2017) including a list of streets to be repaired, click here
