City ramps up for work on B Street

By
From page A4 | March 05, 2014 |

Major construction work on B Street is set to begin Wednesday, eventually transforming curbs, gutters, sidewalks and repaving a portion of the street from Russell Boulevard to 12th Street, the city has announced.

The project began in July 2013 with concrete work, continued with closures in September 2013 and got delayed in November by one of this year’s rare rainstorms.

One of the improvements is to reconfigure the crossing at St. James School to make it a shorter crossing path for pedestrians. Paving B Street from Russell Boulevard to 14th Street will make up the second phase of construction, with focus on the section between Seventh and Eighth streets that the city says will be closed  three weeks for road work.

The major impetus for the project is to make the road surface more even to improve comfort for bicycle riders.

Throughout the closure, alternative parking, signs and flaggers will help motorists find ways around the construction. Residents with access from B Street between Seventh and Eighth streets will be able to park in the lot shared by the Davis Senior Center and King High School.

The city warns residents to expect increased noise and dust. Plus, there may be construction-related odors.
