Santa Monica Roads, Sidewalks To Receive $4.4 Million Improvements:

Keeping the roads and sidewalks maintained in Santa Monica is not cheap. At the most recent City Council meeting, council members approved two expenditures nearing $4.4 million to make improvements to Santa Monica’s streets while also upgrading a roadway at Moomat Ahiko Way and implementing recommendations of the Bicycle Action Plan.

Sully-Miller Contracting Co. was awarded a contract worth $4,006,588 at the July 22 council meeting as part of the Annual Paving and Sidewalk Repair Project.

A second contract was approved for $386,804 and authorizing Civil Source to perform construction management and inspection services.

According to City staff, improvements are being made across Santa Monica as part an effort to maintain streets at a “high functional rating level” while also enhancing sidewalks for pedestrian safety.

Specifically, street paving is planned for residential streets in the Mid-City area, according to City staff.

The Mid-City area between Santa Monica Boulevard, Montana Avenue, 15th Street, and 26th Street is where street paving is planned as part of the approved funding project.

“Additional street paving would occur on Second Street between Colorado Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard in the downtown, on Ocean Avenue between Seaside Terrace and Pico Boulevard, and on the westbound I-10 Freeway off-ramps for Lincoln Boulevard, Fifth Street, and Fourth Street,” City staff stated.

Also, a damaged concrete roadway along Moomat Ahiko Way will be replaced.

The replacement will take place during a three-week roadway closure, according to City staff, with the closure occurring just ahead of the start of the California Incline reconstruction.

“As the designated alternate route for the upcoming California Incline Reconstruction Project, traffic volumes on Moomat Ahiko Way are expected to be heavily increased, and the proposed roadway improvements are designed to enhance the structural stability, smoothness and drivability of Moomat Ahiko Way in anticipation of this designated role,” City staff stated.

According to City staff, work on Moomat Ahiko Way improvements should start by October and be completed before Nov. 15.

Some of the work to be performed includes the installment of green bike lanes along Second Street between Colorado and California Avenues in Downtown Santa Monica.

Some street striping will also be modified as part of the City’s Bicycle Action Plan.
