Road construction contractors and traffic control engineers will be busy the remainder of the summer completing various street projects throughout Morgan Hill.
These include nine streets that comprise the city’s 2021 “pavement rehabilitation project.” Work started earlier this month on one stretch—Peak Avenue from Main to Dunne avenues—with utility work on the right-of-way, according to City Manager Christina Turner.
Crews will begin repaving Peak Avenue by next week, and are expected to finish by Aug. 6. Then, similar work will begin on the next stretch of Peak Avenue to the north, from Main to Wright avenues, with a projected completion date of Aug. 16.
Other roads receiving a repaving treatment this summer are Farallon Drive, Torey Court, DeWitt Avenue, Alkire Avenue and Main Avenue (between DeWitt and Peak). These are also expected to be complete by Aug. 6, Turner said.
Work is also underway on the Butterfield Boulevard Linear Park extension. Phase 2 of this project will continue through August, and consists of work between Tennant and Barrett avenues. Crews will demolish and replace the existing curb and gutter, repave the street surface, relocate light and traffic poles, pave trails and install trees, according to the city’s website.
Phase 3 of the Butterfield project is also underway, and is taking place between Barrett and San Pedro avenues.
