Westside locations among city street upgrades listed through Oct. 16

       Below are the locations scheduled by City Public Works for 2C and other road upgrade programs on the Westside during the time frame of Sept. 26-Oct. 9.
       - Lower Gold Camp Road from 21st Street to 26th Street - concrete.
       - 21st Street from Bott Avenue to Lower Gold Camp Road - paving.
       - 26th Street from Cimarron Street (Highway 24) to Cucharras Street - maintenance paving.
       - Wheeler Avenue from Westend Avenue to 21st Street - milling and paving.
       In general, note that there could be traffic impacts at any time in the work locations, including the temporary loss of a through lane or even a detour around the site.
       2C was the name of the city-sponsored ballot measure that voters approved in last November's election. It established a .62 percent sales tax over a five-year span, dedicated to road improvements.
       The upgrades consist of concrete upgrades (where applicable) and new paving on a prioritized list of road segments. A city website with 2C information can be found at
