Road Work Closing Myrtle Street Next Week


The Eastern Area Phase 2 Project is inching toward completion.

RMCI will begin paving Monday, Oct. 29 on Myrtle Street, followed by 9th Street, Canyon Road and 5th Street.

Paving operations should be completed on or before Friday, Nov. 2, assuming there are no weather or mechanical delays.

Work is anticipated to start at 8:30 a.m. each day and the County is asking residents to refrain from parking vehicles in these street in the active construction areas.

RMCI staff will be on hand to assist motorists with vehicular access while paving is ongoing; however, there may be delays, especially if the paving operation is crossing a driveway or an intersection.

Motorists should not attempt to drive over the hot, fresh pavement until the contractor has removed barricades.

In addition to paving operations, RMCI will be constructing a concrete valley gutter across Myrtle Street at 15th Street.

Once built, the fresh concrete must cure for seven days before vehicles can be driven over the valley gutter.

Therefore, Myrtle Street at 15th Street will be closed starting at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 29 to Monday, Nov. 5.

Detours will be established to direct motorists east on Myrtle.

Residential access and routine deliveries, as well as trash/recycling collection will be maintained.

The paving operations will bring a high volume of construction activity to this area. Use extreme caution and advise children to stay away from the construction equipment.
