Paver work may start on Stockton Avenue by end of the month

Curb and gutter construction is nearing completion on the Stockton Avenue Rehabilitation Project.

All of the underground work is pretty much completed.

Ditto that for the curb and gutter construction.

This was part of the update report of the Stockton Avenue Rehabilitation Project provided by Senior Civil Engineer Sarah Collins at Tuesday’s Ripon City Council meeting.

“It’s finally moving along,” she mentioned to elected leaders.

Collins added that roadway grading is now underway.

“Hopefully, by the end of April, we’ll see the pavers starting on Stockton Avenue,” she said.

Even in its current state – unpaved with dirt and gravel – Mayor Dean Uecker noted Stockton Avenue is in “the best (condition) in 20 years.”

Council, earlier, approved a change order of $19,159 for additional concrete work. Funding will come from the Measure K grant.

“During the installation of the concrete sidewalk at the properties of Dave Hall Masonry, De Graff Development and Jackrabbit, it was noted that the sidewalk at the driveways to these properties needed additional reinforcement,” said Collins in her report.

The Stockton Avenue Rehabilitation Project has been underway for about a year.

D.A. Wood Construction, Inc. was awarded the project in February 2021, with work involving a complete road reconstruction of Stockton Avenue from Second Street to Doak Boulevard.

Along with the repair and replacement to the underground utilities, Stockton Avenue, once completed, will feature concrete pavers, new streetlights and six-foot sidewalks.

Completion is targeted for this summer.
