Crews working to catch up on Diamond Drive Phase 3

-A A +A

In an effort to get back on schedule, RMCI Inc. crews working on the Diamond Drive Phase 3 project will be out seven days a week, instead of the regular five days that they have been working.

For the past few weeks, the contractor has been about two weeks behind schedule on the project. As a result, crews have begun working from 7 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday through Sunday in an effort to get the project back on track.

Project Manager Rey Gonzales said that poor weather, hard rock and a late start have all contributed to the contractor falling behind schedule.

Crews began the seven-day workweek last week.

Crews began work on Phase 3 in May, however problems with striping equipment put them behind schedule.

At that time, the equipment used for removing the existing striping was broken and needed to be fixed before crews could begin striping work for the start of the project.

Now, in hopes of getting back on track, the contractor has broken the crews up into four groups, with the first two crews working Sunday through Wednesday and the second two crews working Wednesday through Saturday.

Except for the July 4th weekend, crews will work seven days a week until the project is back on schedule.
