Briefly: Second Street detours continue

April 16, 2011 |

Detours will resume Monday at Second Street intersections downtown as the city continues road improvements.

Workers will close off one intersection at a time throughout the week, starting at Second and C streets and moving eastward to D, E, F and G streets, Deputy City Manager Kelly Stachowicz said.

This week, workers are finalizing infrastructure improvements, such as stamping the crosswalks at the intersections, Stachowicz said.

Businesses will be open during construction and the sidewalks accessible to pedestrians. Roads will be reopened at the end of each business day.

Parking is free at the E Street Plaza lot until the end of the project.

Motorcyclist hurt in traffic crash

A motocyclist was injured Friday night when he collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Brannigan Avenue and Hunter Lane in Woodland. The cyclist, 58-year-old Alfredo Calderon of Woodland, was taken by helicopter to the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento for treatment of his injuries.

The vehicle’s driver, 65-year-old Juan Larios of Woodland, was not hurt, police said. The cause of the collision has not yet been determined. Brannigan Lane between Ogden Street and Losoya Drive was closed for about an hour after the 10:50 p.m. crash while police conducted an investigation.

Witnesses or others who have information about the crash are asked to contact the Woodland Police Department at (5t30) 661-7880.

DCC will open its handicap ramp

Davis Community Church recently completed construction of an accessible entrance ramp and steps to the front doors of the historic sanctuary at Fourth and C streets.

In keeping with the church’s mission to welcome all persons to worship, the entrance improvements finally will allow everyone to enter through the front door. While historic church architecture was often exclusive and designed to cloister certain individuals, the sanctuary entrance is now intentionally inclusive.

To celebrate the completion of this project and re-enact Christ’s entry into Jerusalem, the church will have a processional today from the C Street patio up the ramp and through the front doors of the sanctuary at the 8:20 and 10:50 a.m. Palm Sunday services.

Show host raises funds for KDVS

France Kassing will host her 12th and last fundraiser effort for KDVS at 8:30 a.m. Monday.

Kassing will share behind-the-scenes stories and insights from the interviews she has conducted over the years.

To support the fundraiser, call (530) 754-KDVS or toll free at (877) 399-5387.
