The City of Santa Cruz Public Works Department will be rehabilitating and resurfacing Laurel Street from Mission Street to Front Street extending approximately 200 feet onto Laurel Street Bridge.

Sidewalk and ramp improvements are expected to begin the week of Sept. 8 and continue through October. Sidewalks will occasionally be closed during the project.

Paving and related street work are expected to begin the week of Oct. 6 and continue through mid-November. When paving begins, drivers may expect intermittent Laurel Street lane closures and limited on-street parking Monday through Friday.

All driveways along the project area are expected to be accessible during construction.

The City is working to minimize any inconvenience and appreciates the public’s cooperation and understanding in completing this project. Updates will be posted at the Public Works Department’s website:

Questions and concerns may be directed to Assistant Engineer Hoi Yu at (831) 420-5179.
