Emergency slide repair project starts in Clearlake Oct. 12

CLEARLAKE – An emergency slide repair project along Lakeshore Drive and San Joaquin Avenue in Clearlake will begin next week, with preparation work under way Friday.

FEDCO Construction will start the project – located on Lakeshore Drive adjacent to Nelson's Island and between San Joaquin Avenue and San Joaquin Avenue Extension, on Monday, Oct. 12, and continue through Nov. 6, the city reported this week.

Work hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Tree removal began Thursday and is expected to continue Friday, the city reported.

The project will widen and reconstruct Lakeshore Drive just northwest of the gooseneck. Work will include excavation and grinding out of the existing embankment, and placing new pavement. A portion of the existing roadway embankment also will be stabilized.

Lakeshore Drive through the construction area will be reduced to one through lane and controlled by a flagman. Officials said motorists should expect delays.

Electronic message boards will be in place prior to the start of the project, advising motorists of the work schedule and any changing conditions. Lakeshore Drive will be open to two-way traffic during the nights and weekends. Motorists are advised to drive safely through the construction zone.

The project is weather-dependent, and cooler-than-normal or rainy weather could delay the work schedule.

Anyone with questions should call Clearlake City Hall at 707-994-8201.
