Document Description
The construction along both side of State Street between Sierra Ave and Sutter Ave will include approximately 2,600 linear foot of curb and gutter with 8-foot-wide sidewalk and 5-foot-wide asphalt concrete paveout, ADA ramps, driveways, fence relocation, striping and signage improvements. The construction along south side of Washington Ave will start at State street and wrapping around to Church St on the west side. The Improvements include approximately 1,450 linear foot of curb and gutter with 5-foot-wide sidewalk and 4-foot-wide asphalt concrete paveout, ADA ramps, driveways, striping and signage improvements. The improvement will make it safer for students to walk to Elementary Elementary and Middle School as the new sidewalk will provide a safer, more protected path, than the roadway shoulders the school children must currently travel on to walk to school. Construction is anticipated to begin 2019-2020.
