The following is a press release issued by the City of Ukiah:
On the south side (Mill to Gobbi), crews are installing new sewer lines; work will progress from south (Gobbi) to the north (near Mill). Due to work in the intersection of Mill/State, Mill Street will be closed from School to Main Streets for most of the week. At times, East Gobbi between Main and State Streets will also be closed.
Looking ahead a little further, we’ll start to see the project extend south toward Cherry Street. Beginning mid-November, work will begin to replace the sewer lines in that area, which are located roughly in the center of State Street. Both directions of travel will remain open, and driveways are not expected to be impacted.
On the north side (Norton to Henry), lots of work is happening on the sidewalks on both sides of the street. Most of both sides have been demolished, and new curbs and gutters are being framed. Along with the curbs and gutters, electric lines for the streetlights and irrigation lines are being installed. Concrete work cannot be done when it’s too cold and wet, so some parts of this work may be delayed, depending on how much rain we get.
Where will the work occur? Installing new sewer lines on the south side, working northbound from Gobbi/State; on the north side, work will be occurring on the sidewalks on both sides of State Street.
What are the construction days/hours? Construction hours will be Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. (Veteran’s Day is not a construction holiday.
Will there be dust and noise? Yes. There will be some dust and fairly significant noise associated with both sections of work.
Will there be any disruptions to parking access or streets? Yes. On-street parking in the construction zone will be closed; however, we are working to open up some (temporary) on-street parking on the east side of North State Street. Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times. Through traffic on State Street will be allowed in both directions. Traffic signals at Gobbi/State and Mill/State will be on flash; see above regarding temporary closures on Mill and Gobbi Streets.
Don’t forget to “fall forward” Saturday night!
