News Date: 
March 1, 2017

The City’s fourth sidewalk repair project began repairing a stretch of Riker Street, one-third of a mile long, replacing damaged sidewalks on both sides from Acacia Street to San Luis Street.  The project will replace five trees that are currently damaged or missing, grind the stump, and replace them with 24” box Pyrus Aristocrat.  This species does not damage sidewalks like the Sycamores.  The City’s arborist is examining three additional trees in an effort to save them. 

Much of the work is occurring behind Salinas High School and parents and student drivers must drive cautiously when dropping off or picking up students. 

The job order will cost approximately $146,000 and work will last 35 business days.
