Due to inclement weather June 10, construction efforts on Santa Cruz Avenue and at the Alma Street/Ravenswood Avenue intersection were delayed. Both projects are now expected to be completed next week, by Friday, June 19, 2015. At the March 24, 2015, City Council meeting, in response to a public comment, staff was asked if the bike lane improvements on Santa Cruz Avenue could be installed while the right of way survey and design work is being completed. On June 8, the City’s striping and signing contractor began the first phase of the approved plan by removing parking and installing a 2-foot buffer for the existing bike lane. At its May 5, 2015, meeting, the City Council approved a six-month trial installation of modifications at the intersection of Alma Street at Ravenswood. The modifications by the City’s striping and signing contractor began June 3.
