The construction began earlier this month on Goldenrod Avenue as part of a four-month project to repair and replace curbs, sidewalks and gutters. The work will move to the east and include Spyglass and Newport Coast; read our earlier story here.
Some residents have asked why parking restrictions are posted when no work seems imminent, according to board members who attended this week’s meeting of the Corona del Mar Residents Association.
City officials said they are trying to keep parking available while accommodating crews and their equipment.
“The process is fluid, and they will often post streets ahead of time to give advanced warning,” said Deputy Public Works Director David Webb.
The crews also might leave the signs up after concrete is poured in case they need to come back to an area for more work, or to let the concrete cure before cars park and possibly damage the fresh curbs and gutters, he said.
” We have our inspector watching this closely, and he is continually working with the contractor to keep as much parking open as possible,” Webb said.
