At the May 20 meeting, the City Council will declare May 17 through 23 as National Public Works Week. The celebration highlights the essential services public works provides in the Roseville community and how the health, safety and comfort of the public depends on planning, construction, operation, and maintenance by skilled public works professionals.
Construction will begin in early June on grading the future site for a relocated Fire Station No. 1 at Lincoln Street and Linda Drive, and a segment of the Miner's Ravine Trail under the Lincoln Street bridge. Construction on the project is expected through December 2015.
Roseville will be upgrading curb ramps to meet current ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards in advance of street resurfacing that is planned for later this summer. Work will take place in neighborhoods between Baseline and McAnally, and between Foothills and Americana/Revere.
Roseville is constructing a concrete pedestrian path connecting Bonicelli and Mt. Baldy Courts to provide a more direct pedestrian route for children walking to and from Diamond Creek Elementary School. The project is anticipated to begin at the end of May, 2015, and last approximately 6 weeks. Work hours will be weekdays, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. All streets will be open to vehicle traffic. However, portions of the sidewalks will be temporarily closed while the work is underway.
Roseville will be constructing new sidewalks and curb ramps along Church Street, where they are currently absent. Repair work to a few existing sidewalk locations will also be done. The project is funded by a federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Construction is anticipated to begin mid to late June and last approximately 3 months. Work hours will be weekdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
