Lane closures for Diamond project delayed

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Residents on Sycamore and Ridgeway will have to wait just a little bit longer for the lane closures associated with the Diamond Drive Phase 3 project work to begin.

Though flyers went out to residents who live in the area, alerting them to the beginning of the construction, problems with striping equipment has delayed the onset of the work.

RMCI Inc. has begun moving their equipment to the worksite in preparation for the beginning of the project, but it seems that the lane closures will be delayed by a couple of days.

“Traffic right now is normal,” Project Manager Rey Gonzales said, “the only problem is that we told people on Sycamore and Ridgeway that a closure was scheduled and it looks like we’re going to miss that date.”

Before construction and traffic control can begin, the existing pavement markings need to be eradicated and temporary pavement markings need to be installed on the east side of Diamond, so that drivers know where to go when they do get diverted.

The equipment used for removing the existing striping is a high-pressure water system that can eradicate about 200 feet of markings a minute.
