T■ Chronicle News Service
ravelers on San Jacinto Avenue will need to find alternate routes come Sept. 1, when the city begins replacing 1.1 miles of degraded road. The project consists of tearing up, regrinding and replacing all four lanes of San Jacinto Avenue between 7th Street and Midway Avenue. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Funded by the city of San Jacinto, Measure A and a federal grant, the project is expected to cost $512,400 and the work will be performed by All American Asphalt.
“San Jacinto Avenue is a well-traveled internal connector that needs care and attention. It is also one of our most attractive business corridors that will see a handful of new retail attractions coming to it very soon, said City Manager Rob Johnson. “Improving our streets and infrastructure is a must.”
The city plans to use social media such as its website, Facebook, Twitter and electronic newsletter to provide construction updates. Motorists and community members will soon see electronic construction signage and posted construction signs along the designated construction area. Alternative routes should be sought and reminders heeded to drive safely through the construction zone.
