Underground and building pad work -also known as “site work” – has started at the City Park location and is expected to be complete there in early March. Site work at the Talmage Park location is expected to follow and last until late March. Following the completion of the site work, there will be a break in construction for a few months until the prefabricated restroom buildings are delivered in June or July.
The contractor on the $360,000 project is Doug Clair, Incorporated, of Bishop. The project is funded by the City of Bishop. Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards require attention, even when work is not underway. At times parking will be restricted. The contractor normally works 7
am to 4 pm Monday through Friday. Drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient.
