The County of Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors has awarded the 2015/16 Construction of Miscellaneous Concrete Repairs in the 2nd Supervisorial District of Santa Barbara County for $98,892.94 as a pedestrian safety issue and in preparation for part of its annual Pavement Preservation Program.
The tree removal portion of the project is already under way, while the actual construction is scheduled to begin March 21, 2016 and should be completed in May 2016, contingent upon weather conditions. J.J. Fisher Construction was awarded the contract. The County’s Public Works Department will inspect and administer the construction of this project.
The construction cost is $98,892.94 with 25-percent from the General Fund and 75-percent from the Measure A South funding. These funds are being used to help maintain, preserve, and improve roads throughout the County of Santa Barbara.
This project will include the removal of selected trees which have damaged the sidewalk and pavement and cannot be salvaged. The Contractor will then demolish and remove the damaged sidewalk and pavement and construct new sidewalk and pavement in its place. Tree planting will be done in a subsequent contract to replace trees that were removed.
Construction will occur Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Drivers should be aware of delays, bike detours, reduced speed zones, and increased traffic control when driving through the construction sites.
Public Works Department officials wish to thank local residents, pedestrians, and the travelling public for their patience and cooperation during the construction of this project .
