As part of the City Council’s Key Priorities, the City of Atascadero has approved the Downtown District Pavement Rehabilitation Project. The project will include upgraded curb ramps, improved street surfacing, and striping.
This paving project will take place in two phases throughout the Downtown area. The first phase began in September, 2023 and includes removal and replacement of various curbs, gutters and ramps.
Phase two began in early November and includes paving work on streets. Streets included in the Downtown paving project are Entrada, Palma Ave., East and West Mall, Lewis Ave., the city alleyways behind the West Mall and Entrada Avenue businesses and behind the Carlton Hotel, and the parking lot near the northwest corner of Palma and Traffic Way.
The City will work closely with the contractor on the construction schedule through the Downtown business area, so that the work is done efficiently and quickly during a key time of year for the retailers. The City will mitigate impact to businesses and will work to avoid key events and holiday shopping on popular streets like Entrada.
The City appreciates everyone’s patience as we work quickly to complete this important project! Please drive carefully through work zones, following traffic control signage and please be respectful to construction workers.
