The SMART Larkspur extension construction work continues with the Francisco Blvd. West realignment and Phase-1 of the Multi-Use Path (from Rice Street to Andersen Drive). The Francisco Blvd West realignment is moving forward at a fast pace. The subcontractor, Ghilotti Brothers Construction, is not wasting any time with construction. The work includes environmental mitigation of wetland/habitat ponds.

Construction of the Multi Use Path-Phase 1 is moving forward at full speed. To date the contractor has finished installing all of the concrete piles where the MUP will be place. The concrete/rebar piles have about a 16-inch by 16-inch cross section with lengths of up to about 60-ft. This week, they’ve started to drive the sheet piles that will serve as an earth retaining structure where portions of the MUP will be placed.
