Map shows streets that are part of the 2019 Street and Pedestrian Improvement Project. Construction will begin later this month.

In a letter sent to Galt residents, the city announced last week that it would begin the construction of the 2019 Street and Pedestrian Improvement Project in late August 2019.

According to a recent press release, Knife River Construction is expected to start the work in the coming weeks.

At a cost of almost $1 million, this construction project will include road repair/re-surfacing, striping that integrates a dedicated bike lane, and minor concrete corner ramp/storm drain inlet repair.

During construction, temporary traffic detours will be in place.

“We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and assure you that we will do everything in our ability to prevent unnecessary disruptions,” the letter sent to residents said.

The pavement work locations include Lake Canyon Avenue from Fermoy Way to Carillion Boulevard, Oak Avenue from A Street to Elm Avenue, and Industrial Drive from Live Oak Avenue to Pringle Avenue.

A site map is provided showing the locations and description of work on the city of Galt’s website. Additional information may be added to the website page, including project updates, expected detours, maps, etc., as needed.

This project is funded by a combination of State Senate Bill 1 (SB1), city of Galt Measure A, Solid Waste Host Fees, and Transportation Development Act (TDA) bike and pedestrian funding. The construction of the 2019 Street and Pedestrian Improvement Project is expected to be completed by the end of November 2019.
