SANTA CRUZ —The City of Santa Cruz is scheduled to continue the River Street and Water Street Overlay Project this week. Paving will take place on Mission Street from Green Street to Center Street (adjacent to Mission Hill) on Wednesday, April 1. Paving on Water Street from River Street to N. Branciforte Avenue will begin on Thursday, April 2, and continue through Tuesday, April 14.
Construction at both locations will take place from approximately 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. — weather permitting. Two-way traffic will remain in place with some detours, however, travelers should expect delays. Parking, bike lanes and pedestrian access in these construction areas will be impacted. Traffic control will be in place during construction hours.
The River Street and Water Street Overlay Project is funded by Measure H, Measure D, SB-1 Gas Tax and state grants. This work is exempted from current local and state shelter-in-place orders as “Essential Infrastructure.”
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 RValdes@cityofsantacruz.com.
