The rain-free week has allowed crews to return to work. They have been focusing on earthwork in preparation for putting down base rock, as well as continuing work on the curbs, gutters, and sidewalks. In order to make up for some of the recent rain days, crews will be working this coming Saturday, March 4, in order to complete needed work in advance of the storm on Saturday evening and Sunday.
Weather permitting, next week (March 6-10) crews will continuing work on the curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and grading for base rock. Crews will also be pouring a barrier wall, and on Wednesday, March 8, crews will freshen up the lane striping on the southbound Highway 1 off-ramp.
