Residents and visitors should expect impacts to typical travel routes from June through December 

ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero has multiple construction projects planned for 2023 within the Downtown core area, including the 2023 F-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project, the Downtown District Paving Project, and the Via Avenue Bridge Replacement Project. While the city takes precautions to limit inconvenience, these projects are expected to impact traffic. Below is a schedule for the major projects impacting the Downtown core.

  1. The Via Avenue Bridge Project will be the first to commence, with the existing bridge scheduled for demolition in mid-June. During construction, which is anticipated to last until mid-November 2023, the bridge will be closed and through traffic will need to find an alternate route over Atascadero Creek. 
  2. The Downtown District Paving Project will commence in late June and last for approximately four months. The project contractor will be obligated to complete work on several of the roadways first, during school summer break, in order to minimize impacts to students’ families. 
  3. The 2023 F-14 Pavement Rehabilitation Project is scheduled to commence in late July and last approximately five months. Roadway treatments on both projects range from light resurfacing to full reconstruction, depending upon current condition of the road. 

These projects are sorely needed and will result in a significantly safer and more comfortable driving experience. Residents and visitors to the Downtown area should expect impacts to their typical travel routes from June through December 2023. In order to minimize these impacts to the greatest extent possible, the city will contract with a single construction manager to oversee and manage both paving projects. Weekly updates will be provided throughout the remainder of 2023 so residents and visitors can anticipate and plan around scheduled road work.
