California Avenue (from Luna Street to Princess Jean Drive) and Lester Avenue (from Skyway Drive to S. Walnut Street) are scheduled to be repaved by Renegade Construction as part of a City pavement replacement project. The work will begin Monday, April 8 and is estimated to be complete on Friday, April 12. Work will take place between 7 a.m. and as late as 6 p.m., leaving evenings free from construction activity. The roadways will be accessible to residents during construction.
Southbound Walnut Street motorists are advised that they may encounter short-term, temporary delays at Lester Avenue as a portion of the work will require an intermittent flagman operation. However, to ensure that school traffic is not hampered, Walnut Street will be free from delays during student drop-off and pickup at Lynn Middle School.
The City has verified that no conflicting public or private construction projects will take place in that immediate area during this time and RoadRUNNER Transit routes will not be affected.
On-street parking on California Ave. and Lester Ave. will not be possible during construction. For more information, contact the Public Works Department, Construction Management at 575/528-3098. The TTY number is 575/541-2182.
