Road Construction Projects - Water Quality Improvement Program and Street Paving Project

The City has two major construction projects that will begin in Summer 2015, the Water Quality Improvement Program and the annual Street Paving Project. To minimize construction disruptions, we have developed this website to provide information on the projects and alert travelers to expected traffic disruptions. As construction begins, we will update this site with new information on traffic impacts and detours.
