Twin Lakes Project — 7/12/18 Update

Photo, 7-12-18 Blog update

SCHEDULE UPDATE:

STRIPING WILL TAKE PLACE THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, JULY 19 AND 20.

ROADWORK

Most of the roadwork has been completed, including paving, raising manholes, and installing monument boxes.  Two lane two-way traffic was restored on Friday, June 22.  Striping is all that remains to complete the roadway, and will take place on July 19 and 20.  The striping operation will take two days to complete.  Expect delays.

Striping had previously been scheduled for the week of July 2, however, it was determined that switching the striping material from paint to thermoplastic will provide a higher quality end product that will last longer.  The striping operation was rescheduled to accommodate this change.

Other work that is nearing completion includes landscaping, pedestrian guardrail, trash enclosures, and installation of an interpretive sign.

RIBBON CUTTING

A ribbon cutting ceremony has been scheduled for Friday, July 27, 2018, 12:00 to 1:00.  Please help us celebrate the completion of the Twin Lakes Beachfront Improvement Project.

ROADWORK

Work in the roadway is nearing completion with just a few operations remaining.

Tuesday, June 19:  Graniterock will grind the asphalt in the intersection of East Cliff Drive and 7th Ave. Flaggers will assist to keep traffic moving through the intersection during the grinding operation. Expect delays.

Wednesday through Friday, June 20 – 22:  Graniterock will complete final lift paving. One lane one-way traffic will be open while the asphalt is being installed. Expect delays. Two lane two-way traffic will be restored by Friday, June 22 with temporary traffic markers.

After grinding and paving are complete, and two-way traffic has been restored, Graniterock will raise manholes and water valves in the roadway. This may cause delays. Permanent striping will then be installed by July 3, which will conclude work in the roadway.

Other project work may remain to be completed, such as landscaping and fencing, but nothing that will impact traffic.

Twin Lakes Beach Project — May 21st Update

20180512_1027380_resized-e1526923081446.jpg

Work on the Twin Lakes Beach Project is progressing well.  Shotcrete has been placed on the coastal protection structure and sand from the beach has been pushed back into place.  Crews are currently in the process of installing the pedestrian guardrail so the sidewalks can be utilized by visitors.  Seatwalls and boulders are in place and the planting areas will soon have irrigation and plants installed.

The contractor, Granite Rock Construction (GRC), plans to have most of the beach and the pedestrian walkway restored and available by May 25th in time for the Memorial Day weekend.  Some on street parking will also be available.

One-way Traffic Flow on East Cliff Drive to Continue.

GRC will continue to work on the road during the final phases of construction.  In order to maintain safe traffic flow through, and adjacent to, the work zone, the traffic pattern will remain temporarily modified to allow eastbound traffic only on East Cliff Drive between 5th Avenue and 7th Avenue.

By 5/25 the one way traffic lane will be shifted from the north to the south side of the road .

Westbound traffic will continue to be routed north on 7th Avenue, west on Eaton Street, and south on Lake Avenue back down to East Cliff Drive.  Two travel lanes will be restored at such time as both traffic and construction can be safely accommodated.

Paving work is schedule to be completed, and 2-way traffic is planned to be restored, by June 22nd.  Some roadwork will still need to take place but should be completed, barring unforeseen conditions, by July 3rd.

General Project Information

All Harbor restaurants, stores, businesses, and facilities are open during construction.

Twin Lakes Beach and the Harbor area are destinations for visitors throughout the year, and in all kinds of weather.  For everyone’s safety, please use caution when moving through the construction zone, obey all signage, and please share the road.
