Project Completion Date
Work on the project is moving right along, with roadway grading on the south side of East Cliff Drive, installation of curb and gutter, completion of CLSM placement, and installation of shotcrete rebar. Some construction items have taken a bit longer than anticipated to finish, which has pushed the project completion date to May 21, 2018. Weather days have been a factor as well.
One-way Traffic Flow on East Cliff Drive to Continue
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.
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.
Coastal Protection Structure
The Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM) that makes up the bulk of the structure has been poured and is in place. The steel reinforcement has been installed and the next step is to pour the shotcrete portion of the wall atop the CLSM. Drainage structures have been installed below the finish surface. Finish subgrades for the sidewalks and pathways have been established and installation of the flat work will occur over the next two weeks.
Parking within the construction zone is permitted only in the four stall parking area on the north side of East Cliff Drive between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue. Please observe all construction area signage.
All parking in the Twin Lakes area is included in the Live Oak Parking Program. Please visit http://www.dpw.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/Home/ParkingPrograms.aspx for more information about the program.

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.
