  3. Waterfront Lot Phase 2, Marina Parking Lot Improvement Project – The wet weather has affected the progress of construction. Currently, we are working on completing the work around the boat ramp/parking lot area. We anticipate opening this section of the lot around March 31, 2023. Weather permitting, we will start on the work along Figueroa Street in conjunction with PG&E, next week. Construction along Dustbowl Brewing Company for the new exit lane is ongoing and will continue until late April. We thank the community for their understanding and patience during this construction. It's going to be really nice when it's completed!

    Three week schedule | Map of Work Area | Read notice | Updated Temporary Striping Layout
    Next week (weather permitting) we will complete the final pour at the boat ramp, allowing for the concrete to cure before opening it to traffic. We will also begin construction on Figueroa in coordination with the ongoing PG&E work. The main exit lane work along the Dust Bowl will continue throughout the end of the month and into next month. 

    Key dates:
    The week of 3/20 we will temporary stripe the new parking stalls as per the attached and open that section including the boat ramp to traffic. Once we open parking stalls as shown, traffic will be diverted to allow for demolition/ storm drain installation across the current entrance/ exit lanes. 
    POSTPONED - TO BE RESCHEDULED SOON 3/20 PG&E is scheduled to complete the Wharf 2 (Marina Parking lot) service switchover on Monday night, 3/20. Weather permitting the work is scheduled to start at 9pm and be completed by 7am.

    As of February 21, the gates at the Waterfront Lot were removed and the lot is now a self pay lot. Once the construction is complete, the Marina Lot and Waterfront Lot will operate as one lot referred to as the Waterfront Lot. With this change, the rate was adjusted. The rate in the existing Waterfront Lot was $1.00 per half hour with a daily max of $15.00. Now the rate is lower - $1.50 per hour with a daily max of $10.00 to match the Marina Lot rate. Courtesy notices (see sample below) will be issued letting visitors know of the change.

Active Projects


Question: How do I report a raised sidewalk that has a potential to cause a tripping hazard?
Answer: If the uplift is caused by a city tree the city will fix it, otherwise it might be on the responsibility of the property owner or a utility company to address the issue. Typically, a Public Works crew will go out to identify the uplift, measure the uplift, paint the uplift and take pictures. We keep a log and send the appropriate party a letter to address the issue.
