TRINIDAD SEEKS CONTRACTOR FOR ROAD REPAIR PROJECT
Trinidad, CA- After nearly ten years of planning, road construction will begin for two streets in Trinidad. It’s a $423,000 project. The city is now tasked with finding a contractor to reconstruct Azelea and pacific streets in Trinidad.
City Manager Karen Suiker says, "It does not meet California code with respect to emergency access." Crews will widen, pave, and install curbs and gutters. The city will also replace a water line and install a new fire hydrant.
It’s an issue that community members like Debbie French have been trying to change for years. French says, "If there were a fire down here we'd all be in a world of trouble becasue there's not enough room for the trucks to come down and do what they need to do."
The street will be widened from 9 feet to 17 feet. Construction will begin in May.
