Winters community members met a rough Monday morning as CalTrans crews rolled in on Monday, Aug. 30 and blocked off parts of Highway 128 (Grant Avenue) in the morning hours as they began a repaving project. On Tuesday, Aug. 31 the road had controlled traffic and lane closures from the Walnut Street roundabout all the way down to the overpass. Trepa told the Express that CalTrans didn’t provide any courtesy notice for the work, and since they were operating in their right-of-way they were not required to obtain a permit from the City. Crews completed the initial phase of the project on Sept. 4 and made minor utility adjustments on Sept. 7 Thomas Martian, Project Manager/Engineer with Ponticello Enterprises Consulting Engineers, Inc., said crews are scheduled to lay down the final striping from Sept. 13-15. Martian advised that Winters community members should expect to experience traffic congestion and controlled traffic on Highway 128 (Grant Avenue) during the upcoming work days. During heavy traffic points of the day from Aug. 30 to Sept. 4, vehicles were backed up in front of Winters High School and along the Interstate 505 overpass. Many trucks were seen waiting in the median as controlled traffic crews allowed cars through the one-lane areas on Grant Avenue. Winters Police Department suggested an alternate route for south bound travel on Railroad Avenue to Putah Creek Road and an alternate north bound travel route to take Railroad Avenue/County Road 89 to County Road 31. Future projects Rob Nickelson, Vintage Paving Co. Inc. co-owner and Vice President, said they are scheduled to work on a project to be completed later this fall. Information in the City Manager Update indicated that work is scheduled from Nov. 1-5 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). A painting refresher is also schedule on Morgan Street for Nov. 6 to replace the existing striping and to add a center line and bike lanes to both sides of Morgan Street.
