The City of Oakland has heard the concerns of the business community about the disruption that construction will pose to the economic activity of the College Avenue corridor during this particularly sensitive time. In addition, resident's needs during the 7 days of planned milling and paving also remains a priority for the City. It is also our goal to repair our deteriorated pavement infrastructure, and deliver on important pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements. Additional constraints the project faces include fulfilling contract obligations, and meeting funding expenditure deadlines. To clarify, no single block would be impacted by paving for more than two days in a row. The City is actively discussing feasible options at an executive level and will respond to the community before commencing construction.
