Bishop Warren St. Update

Bishop’s Warren St improvements continue

Update, Friday February 13th.
Warren Street Construction Update 5
Construction of the City of Bishop Warren Street Improvements project is in full swing with the center of activity moving north toward Academy Avenue. The first new sidewalk constructed for the
project is opened today and more is expected to open next week. Next week the contractor is expected to continue sidewalk
construction along the west side of Warren Street to Academy Avenue and the Bishop library. Depending on City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) power crews work in the area, sidewalk construction may also happen on the east side of Warren near Line Street.  Next week storm drain construction is expected to continue north along the east side of Warren Street across Academy Avenue to near Pine Street. Storm drain construction includes the placement of underground pipes and
inlets in intersections. Storm drain construction includes digging deep and wide trenches along and across streets.Construction on and near Warren Street in downtown Bishop causes inconvenience and delays. Drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient. Construction of the project requires full street and intersection closures. 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 Thurs day and has Fridays off.
Remember your local businesses are open to serve you during regular business hours even when active construction activity is underway.  For more information contact City of Bishop Public Works at publicworks@ca-bishop.us or 760-873-8458.

Warren Street Construction Update 4
The first concrete was poured this morning (Thursday, February 5th) for the City of Bishop Warren Street Improvements project. Concrete work is expected to run almost continuously on the
project from now into May. The new concrete is colored and has animal tracks stamped in it.  The first phase of the Warren Street Improvements project will construct continuous colored concrete sidewalks on Warren Street from Line to Pine Street. Sidewalks will
also be constructed on Church Street and on Academy Avenue between Main Street and Warren Street. In addition to the new sidewalks, the street will be repaved, storm drain will be constructed, street trees and decorative street lights will be added, and seating areas will be provided. The street lights will have provisions for hanging flower baskets and for banners during special events.
While concrete work has just started on the project, other work on the project, including storm drain, continues. Almost all of the storm drain work is completed on South Warren Street and now construction of the underground storm drain pipe will progress along the east side of North Warren Street to near Pine Street. Storm drain construction involves the construction of a new storm drain across Line Street. The construction across Line Street will require the full closure of West Line Street (Highway 168). The work is planned starting 9 pm Tuesday, 10 February, and continuing until about 6 am Wednesday, 11 February. Traffic will be detoured by way of South Fowler Street and West South Street during the night closure.
Construction on and near Warren Street in downtown Bishop impacts traffic in the area and causes inconvenience and delays. Drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient. Construction of the project requires full

street and intersection closures. When a street is closed, don’t drive on it, even if it is only to go a little ways. The closures are usually necessary for worker or public safety.  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.  Remember your local businesses are open to serve you during regular business hours
even during construction.  For more information contact City of Bishop Public Works at publicworks@ca-bishop.us

Warren Street Update

Work Continues on Bishop’s Warren Street

From the City of Bishop Public Works Department:
Construction of the City of Bishop Warren Street Improvements project continues with construction of storm drain on South Warren and with preparation for concrete work on North Warren. Storm drain construction is progressing north along South Warren from near Lagoon Street. The new storm drain pipe is expected to have been placed in the ground as far as Line Street this week and is expected to continue north of Line next week. Restoration of
pavement and concrete removed for the storm drain construction on South Warren is expected in the next few weeks.
Tuesday, January 27th the contractor started removing existing concrete on North Warren near the police station in preparation for the placement of the first new concrete on the project next week.
Before new concrete can be placed, existing concrete, pavement, and trees must be removed, pipes for street light electricity and irrigation must be placed, and the ground must be graded with gravel base. This preparatory work is expected to be completed in this one area so the first concrete can be placed here next week.
Construction in downtown Bishop impacts traffic on city streets west of Main Street and will cause inconvenience and delays. Closures required for the construction include full street and intersection closures during the daytime. Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards will require attention, even when work is not underway. Businesses will still be open to serve you during construction. All efforts will be made to maintain access to businesses and to minimize project impacts and restrictions. Drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient.

Work on two hydrants on South Warren is expected to be
completed over the next week including the days before and after Christmas and New Years.
Once all water work is complete, the contractor plans to construct sewer improvements on Academy Avenue near Main Street and in the intersection of Warren and Lagoon streets.

cleanup before the entire water and sewer project is complete. Construction of street improvements along Warren Street is expected to start as early as January and last into May 2015.
Road closures are required while work is underway. Temporary water and sewer shutoffs are necessary for some construction operations. Notices of the water shutoffs will normally be
distributed two days in advance. Patience with these closures and shutoffs is appreciated. This construction in downtown Bishop impacts traffic on city streets west of Main Street and will
cause inconvenience and delays. Closures include full intersection closures.

Water Conservation Incentives from the City of Bishop

The City of Bishop offers a water conservation incentive program to help its water customers save water. The program can provide some water saving items free like hose nozzles and can provide rebates on other water saving items like new sprinkler systems.

Free items include automatic hose shutoff nozzles, hose timers, and
irrigation timers.

$100 rebates are available for water wasting toilets, washing machines, and dishwashers that are replaced with water saving models. A $250 rebate is available for new sprinkler systems.

Specific requirements are available at the city website or by contacting Bishop Public Works.

For most free items you just need to stop by the Bishop Public Works
office, fill out a short form, and pick them up. The incentives are available only to water customers of the City of Bishop and are limited to one per customer account.

Saving water saves money, reduces water rates, protects groundwater, is the right thing to do, and is now required by the state.

Contact the City of Bishop Department of Public Works at 873-8458 for more information on water conservation, the water conservation incentive program, and the City’s water system.
