Despite wet weather this week, crews finished sidewalks and sidewalk ramps on the 1400 block of Camino del Mar. On the 1300 block, irrigation work and other preparation continued to prepare that stretch -- which fronts the library and medical offices -- for pouring next week.
On Monday next week, the project and City Hall will be closed in observance of Martin Luther King Day.
When the work week resumes on Tuesday, crews are scheduled to complete the sidewalk on the 1300 block and begin demolition and curbing on the north end of the 1200 block.
While stormy weather shut down construction on Monday and Thursday this week, weather delays are built into the construction contract and timeline, which shows the project will be finished in late June.
In other scheduling news, starting on Jan. 26, a two-man crew is scheduled to work briefly on Saturday mornings to pressure-wash a treatment solution from freshly-poured sidewalks. That will allow the new sidewalks to be open for the balance of the weekend. This Saturday work is expected to continue for the duration of the project.
