Downtown Project Goals:
Public Engagement: Development of the project will include a significant public outreach and engagement process to help determine the scope of the project. This includes participation of a Design Advisory Committee. Community members will have opportunities to participate in a public engagement process, through stakeholder meetings, public workshops and City Council Meetings. Throughout the engagement process, design engineers will develop conceptual plans that consider stakeholder feedback.
Work During COVID-19
Health and safety remains a priority for all “essential” workers and community members during the COVID-19 health crisis. For this reason, all contractors will adhere to Social Distancing Protocols as appropriate for the work conditions, as outlined in the Public Health Order.
Also, according to guidance from the California Department of Public Health, essential workers will wear face coverings as appropriate.
We will also monitor the latest public health guidance and adapt to new public health orders as they are issued through the duration of the project.
Updated Timeline: The project schedule has been accelerated to every extent possible, with work possibly beginning the week of April 20, 2020. The estimated completion date is the end of August 2020. (Updated April 7, 2020).
Phase I: This phase of the project will focus on repairing the sanitary sewer system - a much needed investment in aging infrastructure and the protection of groundwater and environmental sustainability. This phase will also include repaving and upgrading pedestrian curb ramps to current standards.
Three Methods of Repair
Harris, and Associates, the City's contractor on the project, conducted a survey, inspection, and assessments of the existing sanitary sewer mains and have identified several major deficiencies including cracks, broken and collapsed pipes, sags, and offset joints. To address these deficiencies, Harris, and Associates proposes three different methods for the rehabilitation of the pipelines taking into account the condition of the existing pipeline, type of repair needed, and impact on the downtown business area.
