Construction Starts: Spring 2017
Construction Ends: Fall 2017
Funding Source: General Fund
Background: The perimeter wall along the east side of Santa Gertrudes Avenue from Rosecrans Avenue to Alicante Road is in poor condition. In recent years, it has tilted down slope toward the adjacent homes. Movement of the wall, which retains two to five feet of soil, has resulted in the undermining of the City sidewalk. The sidewalk concrete panels have become uneven and very difficult for pedestrians to negotiate.Work
The construction will include the installation of a new perimeter/retaining wall, new concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter and new parkway landscaping. The design also includes coordination with Southern California Edison to coordinate the protection of the existing overhead power and communication lines. Design is 95% complete.
