Construction is set to begin on Monday, July 8, at Alameda Boulevard and Fourth Street to install new signal lights as approved by the City Council. A contract was awarded last year. The signals were carefully scrutinized by the California Department of Transportation and delayed due to material delivery issues.
The signals are designed to improve safety along the Fourth Street Corridor by encouraging the platooning of vehicles. The signal hardware will be more decorative than typical signals as the city enhances the appearance of the Third and Fourth Street Corridors. Construction hours are being determined.
