Twenty-six curb ramps will soon be constructed in the Tara Hills neighborhood area in order to increase pedestrian safety.
Construction on the Tara Hills Pedestrian Infrastructure Project begins today and runs through late October, according to Contra Costa County Public Works.
The curb ramps will be placed on Shamrock Drive, Dolan Way and Flannery Road. Bulb-outs will be installed at the intersection of Dolan and Flannery. Drainage modifications, sign replacement and thermoplastic striping and pavement markings are also part of the project.
Work will generally occur from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. to minimize impacts to commute and school traffic, the county said.
The $450,000 project is funded by gas tax revenues provided by the SB1 Road Repair and Accountability Act. For more information, go to www.cccounty.us/pwdmap.
