The Army Corp of Engineers' project continues in the Santa Ana Riverbed, including storm drain reconstruction and the continued placement of rock. Major earthwork and the dewatering efforts are now complete. The upcoming work over the next few weeks includes the placement of more rock to the top of slope areas, continued storm drain reconstruction, and the construction of the curb for the bike and multi-purpose trail.
The overall project remains on schedule, and no significant delays are anticipated at this time. The bike path between the west end of the project to Gypsum Canyon is scheduled to be completed by July 2022. City staff will continue to work with the contractor and direct residents' concerns to help minimize impacts to the surrounding community. Additionally, City staff will continue participating in project update meetings to stay informed and help communicate residents' concerns during the course of the work.
