CAPITAL PROJECTS

Eldorado Avenue Improvements Project

Grinding and paving work continues on Eldorado Avenue and will take place from August 13, 2018 to August 24, 2018. Crews may be working on Saturday.

In order to safely control the traffic flow on Eldorado Avenue during this time period, we will need to limit access to the side roads as follows:

  • Peach Street, Dahlia Street and Birch Street on the west side of Eldorado will be closed during this time period. Please use Sloan Street for access.
  • Lexington Avenue and Birch Street on the east side of Eldorado will also be closed during this time frame. Please use Van Ness for access

There will be a pilot car on Eldorado Avenue to lead traffic through the project during grinding and paving operations. Please pay attention to the flaggers and the “Wait for Pilot Car” signs.

We do apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as this project nears completion.

6Separated Bike Lanes

A separated bike lane combines the user experience of a multi-use trail with a conventional bike lane. They have different forms, but all share common elements - they provide space that is used for bicycles and are separated from motor vehicle travel lanes, parking lanes and sidewalks.
