The Nevin Avenue Pedestrian & Bicycle Improvement project from 19th to 27th streets is “99-percent complete,” project outreach coordinator Jacqueline Majors said in a letter to neighbors last weekend.
The letter thanked locals for “putting up with the delays, noise, mess and inconvenience” of construction.
On this windy Wednesday afternoon, cars could navigate most of the strip that has been under construction for months. Aside from a large amount of litter in the area, the strip looked fresh, new and inviting.
“The Nevin Avenue Pedestrian & Bicycle Improvements 19th – 27th Street project is paved, beautiful lighting highlights Nevin Avenue now and landscaping is 80-percent complete,” she wrote. “The park at 24th and Nevin is now a beautiful site to sit and visit. All that is left is striping, sidewalk crossings along with the bike insignia signage.”Of course, the project’s near-completion means the return of street sweeping and usual city parking rules, Majors warned.
Follow this Facebook page dedicated the project for ongoing info.
An upcoming second phase of the Nevin Avenue improvement plan will cover the street between 19th and BART station. More on both projects here.
Here’s the full letter from Majors:
Dear Residents, Businesses,
First I’d like to thank residents, businesses and visitors for their continued patience as we complete an unprecedented amount of work on our aging roads, sewers and water systems. Thank you for putting up with the delays, noise, mess and inconvenience that goes along with construction. I’d like to thank the men and women from the City’s Engineering team and other City employees to our construction team OC Jones, and Construction Management Team Ghirardelli for working together under extraordinary circumstances to co-ordinate the delays with our utility companies. It’s hard work, and it’s tough to make friends when you’re tearing up roads, but rest assured that we value your patience and we understand how inconvenienced you were.
The good news is we are 99% complete. The Nevin Avenue Pedestrian & Bicycle Improvements 19th – 27th Street project is paved, beautiful lighting highlights Nevin Avenue now and landscaping is 80% complete. The park at 24th and Nevin is now a beautiful site to sit and visit. All that is left, is striping, sidewalk crossings along with the bike insignia signage.
Unfortunately, we have to turn Nevin Avenue back over to the City, which means, street sweeping is now in effect IMMEDIATELY, parking permits are NO LONGER valid. Garbage cans are to be placed accordingly. Traffic rules do apply there are no EXCEPTIONS.. please park according to the direction of traffic flow. No parking on curbs, or sidewalks, no double parking, or blocking other vehicles, and please do not park at the bulb outs on each corner. RPD will ticket or tow any vehicle in violation.
The City has implemented a new residential permit parking program. To keep your permit process in place, you should voice your opinions and concern at the Richmond City Council meeting this Tuesday, at 6:30pm at 440 Civic Center Plaza Council Chambers. For further details please contact Denee Evans, 510-621-1718 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
