Bernal Avenue improvements could cause delays starting today

Federal funds being used to finance project

Starting today, drivers can expect minor traffic delays along Bernal Avenue between Valley and Pleasanton avenues as major street improvements get under way.

The project, originally scheduled for last week, was delayed due to rain.

The city is utilizing funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to finance the project.

Brief delays of less than five minutes could be possible as crews grind up old pavement and make repairs. During that time, only one lane of travel will be allowed in each direction.

Construction will be under way between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays. The project is expected to be complete by June 11.

The contractor for the project is Granite Construction Company. For more information, the public can contact City Construction Inspector Tim Armbruster at (925) 931-5690.

It's about time Mother Nature lets Pleasanton fixes its streets. Let's hope that jet stream stays far away not just for weeks but for, oh about five more months. [Yes, I love baseball, LOL.]
