The department of public works says construction related to the Magnolia Avenue paving project will begin on or around July 1. A city notice from department head Chester Nakahara says that Gallagher & Burke, Inc., the contractor under contract with the city, will be coordinating the work and the work of various sub-contractors and will send a notice to residents confirming the start date. Work related to the removal of the 18 designated trees on Magnolia Ave. will be one of the first orders of business for this project.

From the notice:

“As with all construction projects, there may be periods of time when there will be noise and dust created. Best management practices will be in place to minimize impacts to the residents nearby.

No Parking signs will be posted in the specific areas of work stating parking restrictions during business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please adhere to the posted restrictions as your cooperation will help make the project run smoothly. If there are No Parking restrictions in front of your home, please understand that if you want to come and go, you will need to follow the directions of the traffic control personnel on duty. From time to time, there may be the need to slow auto traffic around the construction area, so the appropriate signage, traffic cones, and flagman may be present as required. Please drive carefully in this area and respect all traffic instructions, as this will assist us in completing the project as soon as possible.”

Contact Director Nakahara at (510) 420-3061 or email him at with any questions or concerns.
