The City of Carpinteria’s Public Works Department has issued a notice of construction activity for its Carpinteria Avenue and Elm Avenue Bus Shelter Relocation Project. The bus stop on Carpinteria Avenue at Elm Avenue headed toward Linden Avenue will be relocated to Carpinteria Avenue at Holly Avenue in front of the now-empty lot. Additionally, the crosswalk connecting that bus stop to the other side of Carpinteria Avenue (close to the Alcazar Theatre) will be eliminated. Both the bus stop and crosswalk on the other side of the street, i.e. in front of Danny’s Deli, will remain. There is a crosswalk in use at the Holly and Carpinteria avenues intersection.
The project is slated to begin in July and finish by mid-August, with 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. workdays scheduled. There will be No Curbside Parking signs posted 72 hours in advance of construction commencing. Union Engineering Co., Inc., located in Ventura County, is the contractor for project. For more information on this project, call Joshua Patricior of the Public Works Department at (805) 755-4445.
