The Council was also updated on the highway projects on the west end of town at its meeting Tuesday night. It’s expected that the traffic cones will be removed next week, and then the contractor will start work on striping the highway, and working on curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and driveways. As for the highway work from Apache to Palm Avenue, construction is expected to start February 15. In addition to highway projects, construction will start Monday on playground improvements at Paradise Park. And the Town plans to restripe the intersection at Palomar Avenue and Yucca Trail to try and prevent drivers from passing on the right in the intersection. Other projects in the works are slurry seal on Joshua Lane and Joshua Drive in April; the tennis courts at Jacobs Park in May; a traffic light at Dumosa and the highway in June; and improving road safety on Sage Avenue from the highway to the high school, in July.
