Canal Drive is finally getting the road work it deserves. People will start seeing road work signs and cones as they drive through construction zones on Canal Drive.
On April 27, 2010, the Turlock City Council approved a bid and agreement with Teichert Construction, Inc. of Turlock for the “Canal Drive Reconstruction and Resurfacing” project.
The agreement in the amount of just over $2 million will use some federal stimulus funding.
The Canal Drive reconstruction and resurfacing project will cover from Geer Road to Daubenberger Road.
The first phase of the Canal Drive road work is to finish the section of Canal Drive in front of Turlock High School and Julien Elementary School as quickly as possible before the schools are back in session.
Turlock City Engineer Mike Pitcock has confirmed that construction crews have begun demolition activities for the Canal Drive Reconstruction and Resurfacing project and said, “Our goal is to have the work east of E. Main Street completed prior to the beginning of the school year.”
