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.
