  We wanted to pass along an update from DPW regarding some upcoming work in case you missed the notification that Bauman Landscaping has distributed the door-to-door late last week.     Bauman Landscaping has scheduled the remaining manhole that needs to be completed as part of their work on Jefferson Street. The plan is to complete the work in 2-Days and mid-week days of on Tuesday 8/20 and Wednesday 8/21 were selected in order to minimize impact as much as possible...
The final construction community meeting for the Jefferson Street Project will be held Monday, June 3, 10am at the Fisherman's Wharf CBD Office. Please join us.   We are two weeks away from the substantial completion of the project. Crews are working hard to finish up the north sidewalk and alleyways.   Work includes utility installations, street light foundation and conduit work, and pouring the sidewalks and installing the precast walls and stairs.   Under this tight time...
This week work concentrated on the north side, as the underground utility work continues along with as preparations to pour the new sidewalks and place the precast concrete walls. Some of the new sidewalk has been poured already! Next week will be much of the same: utility work on the north side and sidewalk work to both sides on Leavenworth.   No Saturday work or Memorial Day work is scheduled. Crews will be back on Tuesday to get going again.   Enjoy the long weekend! ...
    In the last week or so there have been a lot of changes along the two-block corridor on Jefferson which means progress.   The contractor poured concrete pavement between Leavenworth and Hyde. It should be opened up to traffic on Monday. That means traffic will flow in one continuous lane westbound from Jones to Hyde (on the new roadway).   The pre-cast concrete walls were delivered to the jobsite and you may see them lined up between Leavenworth and Jones.   The north road way Jone...
Very Busy Out There!     The final pours for the Leavenworth to Hyde roadway will be complete this week. Crews have been busy all week pouring the cement and building the new road.   It must sit for seven days to cure. So the road should be ready for use at the beginning of the week, Monday, May 20th. And traffic should flip to that side.   That week work will begin on demo'ing the old roadway on the north part of that block.             This week the first northern roadway (J...

Next week the plans are to pave the roadway from Leavenworth to Hyde. Two days of paving the first band, and then two more for the second band and hopefully it will be done by the end of the week.   Traffic should be switched to the south side of the first block today. Work begins next week to the north sidewalk between Jones and Leavenworth, including the demo of the old roadway and work to the first alley there are Scoma.          
        This week forms were constructed for the first half of the block from Leavenworth to Hyde and next week crews will pour each band to make headway on the final part of the new roadway!   Later in the week, crews will put in place forms for the second half of the block up to Hyde and hopefully have that poured early that week of May 6th.   This week the Water Department continued water line installations between Leavenworth and Hyde.   Crews poured concrete at the west half o...

          This week the sidewalk on the south side, Leavenworth to Hyde, was poured and is nearly complete. It looks fantastic.

Last week it was announced that Leavenworth (between Beach and Jefferson) needed to be closed for vehicles travelling north. This was due to work at the Leavenworth/Jefferson intersection that would last about three weeks.   That work has been pushed back and will be performed at another time, most likely in the next two or three weeks. So for now, Leavenworth and that intersection will remain in its current traffic configuration: OPEN.   When the time comes to perform that intersection wor...
In order to get ahead of the forecasted Wednesday rain, work will be performed tomorrow (Saturday, March 16th). The contractor will pour the remaining curb and gutter along the south side of Jefferson Street, mid-block up to Hyde. The work will take place from around 7am to 3pm.   This puts the work ahead of the rain, allowing for plans to demo and pour that sidewalk by Tuesday if all goes well.     (Jefferson south curb this week as contractor demos. It will be poured on Saturday.)
south Jefferson curb this week before as contractor demos
This week the first half of the south sidewalk (Jefferson, Leavenworth the midblock) was demo'd and poured. It looks good.   Thanks to all the businesses along that stretch for working with the contractor as this work was performed.
