Alley Restriping in February 2019

From the City Manager’s Weekly Newsletter:

Public Services Work Updates:  City crews are working on a number of projects around the City.

  • Streets Division will touch up the line striping at the Avenida de las Arenas intersection January 28-29 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. This is overnight work so lanes will be shut down. However, one lane will always remain open. The crosswalk has faded, and the City is switching to thermoplastic instead of paint because it lasts longer.

  • The second of five phases to re-stripe fire lanes in alleys in the Village area will be done from February 4-18, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. per the map below. No-parking signs will be set up on February 4 with work beginning on February 7. The striping will be done on “off” days for trash pick-up.
