Ukiah Streetscape Project Update: Intermittent Work Through the Winter

The following is a statement issued on the Ukiah Streetscape Project’s Facebook page:

As we often say…if you want to make an omelette, you’ll have to break some eggs. Here we are, breaking eggs near the intersection of Church and State…historically, one of our most dangerous intersections for pedestrians. This project helps solve that!

We’re having a bit of a love/hate relationship with the rain these days. We all know we need it, but it definitely puts a damper on construction activities. Contractors are working to get through this project as quickly as we possibly can, which is why we’re continuing to work through the winter. However, that means lots of starting and stopping. We always do our best to estimate the next week’s work based on the weather forecast, but we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we trudge through this season.

Wahlund Construction (Clay – Mill):
