In her Oct. 1 community update, City Manager Kathleen Salguero Trepa announced another round of road improvement project dates planned for the Winters area.
Trepa said the City issued a temporary certificate of occupancy for the Chevron Station on Grant since the property owner has received his permits from Caltrans to complete frontage and median improvements.
Work is scheduled to begin next week and includes a lane closure and controlled traffic efforts on Grant Avenue from Monday, Oct. 4 throughout the month. The final striping is expected to happen on Wednesday, Oct. 27, closing out the project.
Construction of the new median will required night work and is set to begin in several weeks.
Trepa encouraged residents to swing by the Chevron to help kick start the reopening of the expanded station and mini-mart.
City street project
The next portion of the City Street Rehabilitation Project is scheduled to begin Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Vintage Paving Co. Inc. is planning to grind and pave a 2-inch overlay on the following streets:
- Russell Street (from Railroad Avenue to Second Street).
- East Street (from E. Baker Street to the East Street Pump Station).
- Morgan Street (from E. Main Street to Grant Avenue).
- Railroad Avenue (from Grant Avenue to Russell Street).
Trepa noted that traffic will be detoured during the work hours, and the streets will be striped following the completion of work.
“Please note grinding will be louder than the slurry operation. Construction work is allowed in the Code to begin at 7 a.m. and our goal is to get off Railroad as quickly as possible,” Trepa said.
A future painting refresher is also schedule on Morgan Street to replace the existing striping and to add a center line and bike lanes to both sides of Morgan Street.
