The contractor completed work on storm drains, temporary lighting, irrigation, electrical conduit and road demolition except at the Hoyt/Pacific intersection.
Work on the waterline continued. Everett Avenue opened up following waterline work in the intersection. The contractor began excavating Library Place's driveway for water line work. Library Place traffic is now directed to enter Rucker off Everett Ave. instead of California. This detour will be in place for most of the remaining Phase 1 work.
The road will begin to look like a road again as concrete paving begins. Paving will continue for the next 3 weeks. The contractor will complete demolition at the Hoyt/Pacific intersection.
Work on the new waterline will continue for the next few weeks. During the waterline work, there will be intermittent loss of water service for several hours at a time. The contractor will notify customers prior to service interruptions.
Future closures of the Rucker and Everett Avenue intersection will occur later in the project in support of the waterline work.
