News in Brief

City to combat potholes The city has begun patching up potholes on four streets, installing asphalt patches along the following segments of streets that have significant pavement deterioration and potholes:

• Harbor Bay Parkway, from Doolittle Drive to Maitland Drive

• Clement Avenue, from Grand Street to Broadway

• Santa Clara Avenue, from Park Street to Everett Street

• Sherman Street, in front of Wind River Drive

The work is estimated to take two weeks, and construction hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The city reports that during construction, motorists will experience minor disruptions in traffic, temporary loss of parking spaces, temporary restricted street access, as well as an increase in noise and dust levels.

It is possible that on-street parking along Clement Avenue will be removed for up to one week during construction hours.

In general, one lane of traffic will remain open at all times in both directions, and bus stop access will be maintained throughout the project.

The construction work will result in short-term lane closures on Sherman Street, from Eagle Avenue to Wind River Drive, and Santa Clara Avenue, from Park Street to Everett Street. Lanes could be closed for up to three hours. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes.

The contractor is required to post "No Parking" signs on barricades at least 72 hours in advance of construction work and individual property owners will also be notified of the parking restrictions.
