Pavement Preservation Work in White Rock:
Chip seal operations continue on Hamlin Court, Pruitt, Paige Loop and Paige Court in White Rock. All the chips have been applied and the final sealant will be applied in mid to late September. The reason for the delay before sealing is to allow the chips to settle; any remaining loose chips will be swept up before the sealant is applied. Residents will receive 48 hour notice before the final sealant is applied on their street.
 Central Avenue Improvements Project:
The contractor is reporting that pedestrians are crossing into the work zone instead of at the provided crossings; this is extremely dangerous and pedestrians are advised to use the provided pathways.
Starting on Tuesday, the sidewalk on the north side of Central between the Post Office driveway to just west of Bathtub Row will be closed to allow for the installation of a storm drain pipe; pedestrians will be routed to the south side of Central.
There is now pedestrian access on both sides of Central Avenue with crossings near Starbucks and another midblock crossing near Metzger’s. Central Avenue continues to be fully closed to motorists between 15th Street and the Post Office driveway. Access to the Post Office will be maintained. Vehicles are detoured to Deacon Street and the Main Street driveway into Central Park Square is also closed.
Motorists should use alternate business parking including those along Deacon, 15th Street, 20th Street and Nectar.
The contractor continues working day and night crews Monday through Thursdays in an effort to complete this section of the project as quickly as possible. Friday and weekend work may occur as needed.
