During the month of April, when festivals are underway, construction will temporarily stop. The city also says they will make sure access to local businesses will not be compromised during construction by working in sections along the 1.5 mile stretch.

The money for this project will be funded by Measure X dollars and various other funds. The estimated cost for this project will be $11.5 million.
