Repave & Redesign of Telegraph Ave.

First Quarter 2020

After the lengthy design process, and discussion with the City’s paving contractor throughout Summer 2019, the paving contractor has communicated that they will not have crews available until December 2019. Because of the negative impact paving would have on Temescal businesses during the holiday season, there will be no paving in December. The City anticipates construction beginning in the first quarter of 2020 subject to weather and other considerations.
