Repaving Operations on Southern Ave.
The city with contracted forces will be repaving Southern Ave. from Apache Dr. to Winchester Rd. within the city on July 28th continuing through to September 15, 2016.  This does not include lane restrictions/closures on Highway 88 (Idaho Rd) at Southern Ave.  The work will result in lane restrictions and lane closures for both east and westbound traffic on Southern Ave.  Due to the nature of the work restrictions and lane closures will extend into the overnight hours and weekends.  Access will be maintained for side streets and residential access points along Southern Ave. with short closures occurring during business hours only as work in front of the intersections and entryways take place.  Reduced speed limits are planned for the work zone so Public Works asks the motoring public and pedestrians to use extra caution and observe speed limits and other construction warning signs.  Schedule of work is subject to change due to unpredictability of weather which may cause some work to be done on Saturdays.

Ironwood Drive from Baseline Ave. to Elliot Rd Alignment

The city will be performing roadway maintenance starting August 22nd thru August 25th.  The work will result in lane restrictions and land closures for both south and north bound traffic on Ironwood Dr.  Work will be held to daylight hours only occurring from 6 am to 3pm for the southbound lanes and 9 am to 4pm for the northbound.  Access will be maintained for side streets and business accesses.  Reduced speed limits are planned for the work zones so Public Works asks the motoring public and pedestrians to use extra caution and observe speed limits and other construction warning signs.  Schedule of work is subject to change due to unpredictability of weather.

Street Striping August 24th-August 25th

16th Ave. from Idaho Rd. to Cedar Dr. and on San Marcos Dr. from Southern Ave. to Broadway Ave.  on August 24th and 25th 2016.   The work will result in lane restrictions for the entire lengths of roadway and lane closures at the major intersections.  Work will be held to daylight hours only with lane restrictions and closures occurring from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.   Access will be maintained for side streets and business accesses.  Wet paint can be expected so Public Works asks the motoring public and pedestrians to use extra caution to not to immediately drive through the paint (i.e. when changing lanes) and observe work zone traffic control.  Schedule of work is subject to change due to unpredictability of weather.
