Paving operations will continue on Redwood Blvd on Monday 3/27/17.

There may also be some light work done on the S Novato bike path.

This week's night work on Vintage Way was slowed due to weather. The forecast is looking much better for next week though. We expect this work to continue from Vintage Way on Rowland Blvd and then to Rowland Way. Working hours will be 10 PM - 8 AM.

Mainline installation on Davidson Street is expected to begin on Monday 3/27/17. Construction will begin near the intersection of Louis Drive and Davidson Street as shown with the yellow highlighted area on the map below. One way traffic control will be setup around the work area with hold times of up to 4 minutes. Construction activities along Davidson Street are expected to last three to five days. Construction start time is 8:00am.

Due to encountering an unexpected utility on Louis Drive, construction activities are expected to be limited for several days next week. No Parking signs will be adjusted to provide residents with additional parking during the reduced construction activities.
