City of Bishop press release
May 15, 2015
Over Mule Days, a break is expected in the final work on the City of Bishop Warren Street Improvement project. This week, work on the project has concentrated on sidewalk construction on the east side of South Warren between Line and Lagoon. This sidewalk construction is expected to be complete by the middle of next week.
While the sidewalk construction has been underway on South Warren, work has been underway on street lights and on water and sewer covers on North Warren. As early as this evening, it is expected the first street lights installed by the project will be turned on.
The first lights to be turned on will probably be along Warren near Church and possibly on Church Street. All the installed lights should be working by the Mule Days weekend. Flower baskets are expected to be placed tomorrow on some of the street lights.
After Mule Days, concrete crosswalks will be constructed in the intersections at Church Street and Academy Avenue. Because this work will affect all legs of these busy intersections, traffic impacts are expected again in this area.
Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards will continue to require attention, even when work is not underway.
