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 16.
MPE removed sidewalk, curb &
gutter, and existing streetlights, and installed temporary street lights east
of Calaveras St to the eastern end of the project, near Fremont Blvd. During nighttime work, MPE connected storm
drains from the south side of West Broadway to the existing storm drain pipe on
the north side of Broadway. This ensures storm water will drain as we enter the
rainy season. In addition, MPE completed subgrade work from Alhambra to
Calaveras Streets. The concrete
subcontractor, Aparicio Concrete needed additional time to complete the forms
for the Hillsdale intersection spandrels, v-gutter, and handicapped ramps. The
landscaping subcontractor, K&D Landscaping, accomplished the following: trenched
for conduit across the City Center roadway; excavated and formed tree wells
between Alhambra and Calaveras Streets; and excavated for and placed irrigation
conduits between Alhambra and the eastern end of the jobsite near Fremont Ave. The
electrical subcontractor, Darrel Varni Electric (DVE), removed existing
streetlights from Calaveras to the eastern end of the jobsite, and energized
the temporary lighting there. In
addition, DVE installed new streetlight conduit east of Calaveras St
Next Week’s Schedule (week of October 23):
The concrete subcontractor, Aparicio
Concrete, will pour concrete curb and gutter, starting west of Hillsdale St and
proceeding eastward. MPE will construct
the subgrade for sidewalk, curb and gutter east of Calaveras St. Darrel Varni Electric and K&D Landscaping
will continue installing conduit east of Calaveras St.
