PEDESTRIAN STOP AND RIDE THROUGH WORK ZONE
Contractor RMCI is required to maintain safe vehicular and pedestrian access throughout its Canyon Road construction project.
The location of existing utilities, placement of new utilities and maintaining vehicular traffic has made it impossible to keep the swing of equipment out of the pedestrian path. This is an unsafe situation.
Beginning Monday, May 20, RMCI will use a 15-passenger van to transport pedestrians through the Canyon Road construction site. The van will make the route every 5 to 7 minutes all day long and will safely carry pedestrians through the project.
The route will start at 9th Street and Canyon Road headed north on Canyon and will make the loops at Nugget and Opal, and Piñon Loop (north and south covered in both directions.) Residents on the Nugget/Opal and Piñon Loops can wait in front of their residence for pickup.
We will have two designated stops, one will be at Pine and Canyon picking up the residents in the cul-de-sac (residents in the Pine cul-de-sac also have access to the Quartz/6th Street stop through the park at the east end of Pine), and the other will be at Quartz and 6th Street to pick up the residents from the Rim/Quartz Loop.
The route will end at 15th and Canyon. The driver will turn around and run the route in the opposite direction. At the end of the day, pedestrians will be given a smooth, designated walking surface for the evening as well as through the weekend.
Direct construction related concerns to the Public Works Department at 662-8150. The County thanks the public for its cooperation in this important matter.
