Broadway Avenue is getting over $7 million in street improvements. This will result in wider sidewalks, new bicycle lanes, bulb-outs for safer pedestrian crossing, a signal light at Alhambra, and one less traffic lane in each direction. Broadway on-street parking will remain available. Traffic is expected to flow smoother due to the signal light. Construction began with tree work in January 2017 and completion is anticipated late Spring 2018.
The project started at the Fremont end of Broadway, moving towards Del Monte. Broadway is now a one-way street (temporarily) through the end of the project. Traffic will move from Fremont West toward Del Monte during the current phase of construction. This allows for parking on one lane Please be patient during the project and drive carefully. Construction is expected to be complete late Spring 2018.
COMPLETED Week of October 30.
MPE prepared subgrade for sidewalk and curb and gutter to the eastern end of the project, near Fremont Blvd. Aparicio Concrete poured an additional 34 cubic yards of concrete curb & gutter and parking area just west of Alhambra Street. The remainder of the week, Aparicio completed curb & gutter forms east of Alhambra St and began forming sidewalk east of Hillsdale St. For public traffic, Calaveras Street access was reopened, so that Alhambra St could be closed for trench excavation for electrical and irrigation conduits. Darrel Varni Electric (DVE) and K&D Landscaping companies were onsite to begin installing utility boxes within the new sidewalk.
Next Week’s Schedule (week of November 6):
Aparicio Concrete, will pour concrete curb and gutter, east of Alhambra Street, weather permitting. After that sidewalk concrete pouring will begin east of Hillsdale St. DVE and K&D Landscaping will continue placing utility boxes in the new sidewalk areas. Also, DVE plans to install streetlight foundations east of Calaveras St.
