Extension of Mira Loma Large Arch Culvert Begins
The project team began work this week on the extension of the six-celled arch culvert at Mira Loma Drive. To make this possible, the water that typically flows through this area has been temporarily diverted to the smaller three-celled arch culvert located on the west end of the golf course. The culvert will be extended approximately 50 feet to allow Mira Loma Drive to be widened at the new intersection. Once the culvert extension is completed, construction of the intersection will begin. Mira Loma Drive will remain open for construction; however, a brief closure may be needed this winter for utility work. Advanced notifications will be provided if a closure occurs.
Upcoming: Active Traffic Signals at Pembroke/SEC Intersection
Beginning October 17, the traffic signals at the Pembroke Drive and SouthEast Connector (Veterans Parkway) intersection will be active. The SouthEast Connector roadway between Pembroke Drive and Sparks Boulevard will not be opened to the public, but the traffic lights will be working for construction equipment and vehicles to cross the intersection without the need of flaggers. Please use caution while driving through the intersection and be aware of the new signals.
Late Breaking on October 6th: Rosewood Lakes Update
RTC Crews Unclog Culvert at Rosewood Lakes Golf Course
The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) and Granite Construction worked together today to address rising wetland waters at Rosewood Lakes Golf Course. Crews have identified and remedied the source of the rising water and the water is receding. Wetland waters did not reach local residences.
Crews discovered that two 18-inch pipes/culverts within the golf course, outside of construction limits, were clogged with debris. The debris caused the water flowing through the golf course to spill onto a golf cart path. Granite Construction employees removed the debris and installed a small, temporary berm along the golf cart path.
