During the week of July 18, Rock Road Companies continued with fine grading of the road corridor in preparation for curb and gutter installation. The curb and gutter contractor, Parisi Construction Co., installed approximately 1,400 lineal feet of curb and gutter from 16th Avenue to 20th Avenue, and continued with setting up the string line for the curb machine from 10th Avenue to 16th Avenue. Voegeli Landscaping continued with the construction of the retaining walls along 8th Street, between 9th Avenue and 10th Avenue. Voegeli also completed the construction of the retaining wall along the southeast side of the bike trail.
They installed approximately 200 feet of retaining wall varying from 4 feet to 8 feet in height. Once the retaining wall adjacent to the bridge was completed, Rock Road completed the trail approaches to the new bridge and started grading the side slopes between the trail and retaining walls. The electrical contractor, Westphal and Company Inc., continued with the installation of the electrical conduit for the street lighting from 13th Avenue to 16th Avenue.
