Carmel: Rio Road Overlay Project
The Monterey County Resource Management Agency-Public Works announces that construction work for the Rio Road Overlay Project between State Highway 1 and Atherton Drive, Carmel will start on August 31, 2015.

The project’s construction activities will require temporary traffic control measures to be implemented, including lane closures, during the course of the construction. Rio Road will remain open to traffic during construction activities. Access to driveways along Rio Road during the construction will be maintained for local residents. Residents, school buses and emergency vehicles will continue to have access to Rio Road during the construction period. To reduce congestion, motorists are encouraged to seek an alternate route during the construction.

Salinas: East Alisal Street/Skyway Boulevard Roundabout Project
The City of Salinas is constructing its first modern Roundabout at the East Alisal/Skyway intersection in Salinas.  Modern roundabouts generally provide the most efficient way of managing traffic through an intersection, while providing the benefits of fewer conflict points between pedestrians and motorists, which enhances pedestrian safety, reduces congestion and average vehicle delay, generating less pollution (via fewer vehicle stops and starts).

August 31 – September 4: complete concrete work and begin pavement reconstruction within the intersection.

 Motorists should expect 5-10 minute delays. 

Salinas: Sanborn Road Waterline Project: Fairview Avenue – Eucalyptus Drive
In a continuing effort to improve water distribution to its customers (with sufficient pressure and quantity), California Water Service Company is undertaking several water main upgrades within the Salinas city limits.  One of the more significant upgrades is the upcoming installation of a 12” water main within Sanborn Road that will extend from Fairview Avenue to Eucalyptus Drive (roughly 1.1 miles long), constructed in phases beginning at Fairview, and ending at Eucalyptus. Traffic controls for lane closures will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.  To lessen the impact on traffic work in the intersections of John Street, E. Alisal street and E. Market Street will be done at night.

Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes to destinations or travel outside of the construction times.  Motorists should expect delays along the Sanborn Road corridor in the vicinity of work during construction.  The contractor for the project is West Valley Construction Company. They have assured Cal water that all driveways to businesses in the area will remain open during construction. California Water Service apologizes for any inconvenience this project may cause and wants to thank the public for their patience during the construction of this project.
