2018 Curb Ramp and Sidewalk Repair Program

In late November, the Public Works Department began construction of the City's 2018 Curb Ramp and Sidewalk Repair Program. This project involves the construction of 28 curb ramps and repair of sidewalk, curb and gutter locations at close to 30 locations listed below.  The project implements components of the: (a) Central Avenue and Carlson Boulevard Street Improvements Project, (b) Access Modification Program – Streets and Sidewalks, and (c) Sidewalk Infrastructure Maintenance Program. Funding is provided by several sources including the City’s Measure A Street Improvement Fund, SB 1 – Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account Fund, and Countywide Measure J Return to Source Fund. Construction is currently anticipated to be completed by May 2019.

Street tree roots will need to be pruned at many of the sidewalk repair locations. However, 17 street trees have or will be removed at locations where the necessary root pruning would be too great to retain the health and safety of the trees. Public Works is following International Society of Arboriculture best management practices in making these determinations and will coordinate with affected property owners to replant new street trees of species suitable for each specific location, after the sidewalk repairs are completed. 

Once work begins at each of the above locations, it should be completed within two weeks. Please reference this map for all of the locations. Advance notice of the specific traffic impacts and schedule will be sent to residents who are located within the immediate vicinity of these locations. This notice will be provided by the City’s construction contractor Kerex Engineering and will include their contact information. In the meantime, if you have any general questions you can contact Gerardo Avila, the City’s Consultant Project Manager/Resident Engineer by phone at (510) 215-4322 or by email.
