The contractor is continuing work on the installation of the storm drain near the intersection of Valley Center Road and Lake Wohlford Road. The 24” diameter storm drain section extending out from the newly constructed catch basin structure (Figure 2) at the northeast corner of the intersection and crossing Valley Center Road has been installed. The section of the storm drain extending south from the catch basin in bioretention basin #4 and crossing Lake Wohlford Road remains to be installed.

The traffic signal sub-contractor has completed the installation of the new traffic signal poles on the west-side of the intersection of Valley Center Road and Lake Wohlford Road. The mast arm for the new traffic signal crossing Valley Center Road spans 50’ to accommodate for the addition of the new travel lanes. The sub-contractor is continuing work on the installation and energization of the four remaining street lights along the west-side of Valley Center Road.
The asphalt base pave along the west-side of the project has been completed (Figure 3). With the base pave along East Valley Parkway and Valley Center Road complete, the contractor is preparing to transition to the final phase of the project. This final phase of construction will split northbound and southbound traffic across the new median. To help alleviate traffic congestion during peak travel season, the City has directed the contractor to open two lanes of northbound and southbound traffic during non-working hours. The transition is anticipated to occur in September.
