SANTA CRUZ —City of Santa Cruz construction of the 2017 Overlay Project has been extended to include the first three Saturdays in October to ensure that the work is completed before the rainy season begins.

The location of work on Saturdays, Oct. 7 and 14 is King Street north of Bay Street to Mission Street. Saturday, Oct. 21, the work will be on Escalona Drive from Bay Street to Laurel Street.

Intermittent lane closures and limited on-street parking are expected during construction. Sidewalks will occasionally be closed, however, all driveways in the project areas are expected to remain accessible.

This work, funded by Measure H tax dollars, includes rehabilitation of local streets that have experienced significant deterioration at seven locations. Overlay work is expected to end on Dec. 22 in time for the winter holidays.

A map with these and other project locations is available at where the construction schedule is updated weekly.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience this construction work may cause and appreciates the public’s cooperation.  Any concerns or questions may be addressed to Project Manager Ricardo Valdés, at (831) 420-5198 or
