Pajaro River Bench Excavation Project
The County of Santa Cruz has contracted with Pavex Construction to construct the Pajaro River Bench Excavation project. Construction of the project will begin July 30, 2012 and finish around October 30, 2012.
The project will remove sediment from Pajaro River flood control channel between Highway 1 and Coolidge Avenue. The sediment removal will allow more water to flow in the channel before flooding occurs. This reduces the risk of flooding from the Pajaro River.
The construction is close to downtown neighborhoods located along the river between Walker Street and Coolidge Avenue. The removal of sediment will require a significant amount of trucking. Trucking routes for the sediment removal follow Walker Street and Union Street. The project calls for removing 32,000 dump truck loads of dirt.
If problems or questions arise during construction, please contact Carisa Duran, Project Manager for Santa Cruz County at 454-2160.
