Road work planned in Suisun City

SUISUN CITY - Workers are expected to start repairing pavement, putting in new street lights and upgrading pedestrian ramps on Sunset Avenue from Railroad Avenue to Highway 12 soon.

The entire project is being paid for by $700,000 in federal stimulus money which the city qualified for earlier this year.

Suisun City Councilmembers are expected to vote Tuesday on awarding a contract to Ghilotti Construction for the work.

Business owners were concerned the work would hurt access to their business so work along Sunset Avenue between Highway 12 and Merganser Street will be done late at night.

The work on Sunset Avenue between Merganser Street and Railroad Avenue will be done during daylight hours.

At least one lane will be open to traffic at all times during the project.
