2017 Slurry Project

Dates: Summer 2017 through Fall 2017

Description: To preserve, maintain, and maximize the service life of public streets and facilities, several parking lots at Heather Farm Park ball fields and forty-nine (49) streets are included in this year’s slurry seal program.  The City has hired a private contractor to apply the slurry seal.  As part of the project, crosswalks will be upgraded to enhance safety, and a new, buffered bike lane will be added.

Impacts:  Over the course of this work, the residents within the work areas may experience traffic delays.  Some streets may be closed to traffic.  In preparation of any street closure, barricade signs will be posted in advance.  During the street closure, no parking will be allowed on the streets between 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM.  Barricade signs will be posted in advance of closures and residents will be notified the week before work begins via a second notice and/or door hanger. During street closure, there will be no parking on the street or driving, in or out, between 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM, so cars must be parked outside of the work areas prior to the work beginning. Any cars parked on the street in a work area will be towed by the Walnut Creek Police Department.

You will have no vehicular access to driveways and streets.  Access will be provided in the event of an emergency.  For a few days following the surface treatment seal, you will notice loose gravel; it will be swept up in a few days.

Even if your street is not being resurfaced, access to your residence may be affected by work on adjacent streets.

There will be some loose gravel after the surface treatment seal that will be swept up a few days after.

Broadway Plaza Promenade

Dates: April 2017 – June, 2017

Description: This private development project in the public right of way includes demolition of the existing Promenade buildings (formerly California Pizza Kitchen/Starbuck’s) to make way for a brand new retailer.  Renovation of the entire Promenade Plaza, where the center fountain now resides, will begin in late Summer 2017 to complete in June 2018.

Impacts: During demolition, there will be night time lane closures on Olympic Blvd. (eastbound) from Locust Street to South Main Street to continue through April 2017. During new construction, night time work will require a right lane closure (northbound) in front of the Promenade through the project completion in June 2018. 

Temporary fencing has been installed around the existing buildings.  In April 2017, a 16-foot high barricade will displace the temporary fencing as the construction begins.

All existing stores in the Promenade will remain open with uninterrupted public access during Broadway Plaza hours.
