project will be completed.

In 2017, crews replaced water pipes on Hamilton Avenue between Emerson and Webster and on Everett Avenue between Alma and Ramona.  Crews also improved Middlefield Road between Lowell Avenue and Palo Alto Avenue. Work included replacement of curbs and gutters, implementation of transportation improvements, and paving Middlefield Road from Lowell to Forest Avenue. On Middlefield Road between Forest Avenue and Palo Alto Avenue, the Transportation Division changed the lane configuration of the roadway to implement the Middlefield North Traffic Safety Project. The lane changes were approved by City Council for a 1-year pilot project.
