Construction of the CMU block sound wall along the west side of East Valley Parkway is nearly complete. The progress of the wall can be seen in Figure 1, below. The masonry subcontractor is continuing with installation of CMU blocks for the sound wall along the eastern side of the project (Figures 2 &3).

Progress on the new roadway continued with the import and placement of base material along the west-side of Valley Parkway between Beven Drive and Lake Wohlford Road and along the east-side of Valley Center Road north of Lake Wohlford Road. The base material for the new roadway north of Lake Wohlford Road is shown in Figure 4, below. The placement of the final asphalt surface is scheduled for next month. Once the asphalt along this section of roadway is placed, traffic will be shifted in preparation for the next phase of the project.

The concrete subcontractor placed the concrete curb and gutter for nearly the entire project during a 3-day operation (Figure 5). The placement of the curb and gutter allowed for progress to continue on the installation of the utility pedestals, transformers, and vaults required for the underground utility conversion as well as the installation of the main line irrigation. The City will continue to coordinate with the utility companies (AT&T, Cox and SDG&E) to prepare for the cutover from overhead electric and telecommunication facilities to underground facilities scheduled for this month.
