Work Schedule

Construction working hours are 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday - Friday, from Monday, June 4 through late summer/fall 2019. There may be occasional weekend work beginning at 8 a.m. 

Parking

The following parking areas are closed to the public for the duration of the project: - Oak Street surface parking lot
- 25-space lot between the Downtown Library and Royer Park 

Dietrich Drive is currently closed to traffic, including the parallel parking spaces.

While trucks are entering and exiting the site, there may be occasional brief closures of the Royer Park lot adjacent to the Veterans Hall. 

Please use other public parking facilities in the area, including the Vernon Street parking garage, Saugstad Park parking lot, and the new Oak Street Parking Garage. View a map of available parking. 

Royer Park & Trail 

Construction is not expected to affect use of Royer Park's playgrounds, picnic area, tennis courts, or ball fields. Watch for bike and pedestrian detours within the park.

Improvements

  • Continuation of the trail into Royer Park, resulting in a continuous 6-mile long off-street trail from Sierra College Boulevard to Darling Way
  • Refurbishment and rotation of the Rube Nelson “Ice House” Bridge 
  • Construction of the Taylor Street pedestrian bridge, connecting Royer Park to the Downtown Library
  • A new downtown pedestrian bridge, providing a direct connection between Royer Park and the Vernon Street Town Square. This bridge will have a high level of architectural detail and be wide enough to accommodate vendors and activities during special events. 
  • Addition of 36 trees
