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.
Public Works News Release
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
