Contract awarded, construction set to begin

The contract for the Parker Avenue Reconstruction project was awarded to Bay Cities Paving and Grading, Inc., out of Concord, California. Bay Cities was the lowest responsive bidder with a bid of $6.1 million. Bay Cities anticipates construction will start during the second week of August.

EBMUD and the City of Pinole have completed their utility relocation work along Parker and San Pablo Avenues. Their work was done in advance of the Parker Avenue Reconstruction project so that their utility lines would not conflict with the construction of the new road surface.

Both Bay Cities and the County inspectors will have project offices on site in downtown Rodeo, most likely at the vacant parcel on the NE corner of Investment and Parker Avenue. Information on how the community may contact the project's Resident Engineers will be posted here soon.
