2020 Sidewalk Repairs To Begin This Month

ARROYO GRANDE, CALIFORNIA – On June 23, 2020, the City Council approved a contract with G. Sosa Construction, Inc. for the 2020 Concrete Repairs project. In July and August 2020, G. Sosa Construction, Inc. will be performing sidewalk repairs along Village Glen Drive and at spot locations on Woodland Drive, Del Sol Street, Vard Loomis Lane, Old Ranch Road, Linda Drive and East Grand Avenue.

The work will involve the repair or replacement of damaged/uplifted sidewalk adjacent to mature trees, and the removal of the trees that are causing the damage. The trees will be replaced with a more appropriate species. The proposed locations are shown in the table below.

During construction it may be necessary to temporarily close sections of the sidewalk partially or completely to pedestrian traffic for safety purposes. In addition, the contractor may need to sign some areas as “No Parking” to facilitate the repair work. The Contractor will place informational barricades on the streets advising of specific dates and locations of parking restrictions. Because work will be performed within residential areas, the specifications restrict work hours to 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on all streets, except East Grand Avenue.

While this important project will help ensure that the sidewalks are safe and accessible for pedestrians, it may cause temporary inconvenience because of the nature of the work. The City appreciates your patience during this period and will attempt to minimize the inconvenience. Please contact the Public Works Department at (805) 473-5460 if you have any special needs or concerns that should be taken into consideration during construction. If you have questions about the project, please call Jill McPeek, Capital Improvement Project Manager at (805) 473-5444. The City will also have an inspector on site to address any of your concerns.
