At its September 7 meeting, the Roseville City Council approved the overall funding required for the Oak Street Parking Facility project. This approval cleared the way for construction to begin. The contractor is scheduled to install construction fencing around the project perimeter on September 12.

Public Works is beginning a pilot project to test a new type of paving material, roller compacted concrete (RCC). The material will be tested in several locations: Washington, from Pleasant Grove Boulevard to just north of Mountain Park Drive; and Atkinson, from Church Street, through and including Denio Loop. A suitable neighborhood location has also been identified, on Hickory between Church and Oakland Streets. The project will remove the existing failing asphalt and replace it with a new concrete surface.
