Work continues on Bishop’s Warren Street
City of Bishop Public Works News Release
Warren Street Construction Update 7
Placement of concrete is the main activity this week on the City of
Bishop Warren Street Improvements project. Concrete work is essentially complete on the block of Warren between Line and Church and will continue next on Warren between Church and Academy. Concrete work is expected to start on Church Street between Main and Warren next week. The completion of storm drain near Academy is on hold while waiting for underground phone
cables to be relocated. Repaving will be one of the last construction operations.
Construction on and near Warren Street in downtown Bishop involves the closure of streets, intersections, sidewalks, and driveways. Access is still available to businesses but in most cases it would be better to park nearby and walk a block to visit your favorite local business. Access to city parking lots is normally still available during construction, but entrances may be different and parts of the lots may be closed due to the construction.
Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards require attention, even when work is not underway. The contractor on the project normally works 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Thursday and has Fridays off. Work is expected to continue into May.
