Forming and pouring

Between 15th and 13th streets this week, workers formed and poured the first of many segments of sidewalk for the Downtown Streetscape Project.

Also poured were the project's first new curb ramps, at 15th Street.

exposed aggregate

The sidewalks are made of 3/8-inch Carrol Canyon exposed aggregate natural gray concrete.

The concrete is scored into 3-foot squares.

Once cured, the concrete is sealed to protect against water and food stains.

Street lights at Civic Center

Also this week, workers installed the first of nearly 60 street lights planned for the Downtown Streetscape.

The pole shown here is 18 feet tall and includes hardware to mount a banner.

Other poles are 12 feet tall and equipped to hang either flower baskets or a banner.

Looking forward: Jan. 14 -18

For the week ahead, crews are scheduled to: finish the installation of sidewalks, curbs and curb ramps along the 1300 block; finish the 13th Street storm drain inlet; begin crosswalk construction on the east side of 13th Street; demolish and replace sidewalks, curbs and curb ramps along the 1200 block. Construction activities are subject to change.


Safety is no accident

In construction areas, one of two lanes and parallel parking will be closed during work hours. Sidewalks could be closed temporarily. Please read and follow all posted signs. Do not cross orange fencing and stay clear of closed sidewalks. Thank you!
