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.
