latest pictures from Parker Avenue

Parker Avenue moving towards completion

Work is progressing at a quick pace as the project's ribbon cutting ceremony approaches. The plants (trees, shrubs, and groundcover) have arrived and are currently being installed in the new medians and bulb-out areas. Planting should be completed by early next week.

The final lift of asphalt concrete is scheduled to be installed on Parker and San Pablo Avenues September 5, 6, and 7. This will provide a continuous smooth driving surface. During final paving, parking will be restricted so please pay attention for temporary "No Parking" signs. Your cooperation will insure a quick and consistent final paving process.

PG&E is scheduled to take down the overhead poles and lines on September 12.

Parker Avenue Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Parker Avenue Reconstruction Ribbon Cutting has been scheduled for 9 AM on September 15, at the intersection of Parker Avenue and Pacific Avenue. Supervisor Uilkema will be on hand to offically celebrate the completion of 10 years of work on downtown Rodeo. Immediately after the ribbon cutting, there will be a parade down Parker which will include the John Swett Marching Band, local fire trucks, and old cars. The parade will end at Lefty Gomez Field, where the Supervisor will cut the ribbon on the new multi-use sports court. Then at 10 AM the Car Show and Chili Cook Off begins at Lefty Gomez Field. It will be a full day of activities, so please come out and join the celebration. Rediscover Rodeo!
