The North Oak Avenue Phase 2 (Poplar Avenue to Walnut Street) Project is scheduled to go out to bid later this month.

The A Street, Cloverland Way, Sierra Road Reconstruction Projects will provide underground infrastructure upgrades and a new road surface on East A Street between Yosemite Avenue and Sixth Avenue, on Sierra Avenue between A and C streets, and on Cloverland Way between East A Street and Sky View Drive. Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, April 12.

The Maag Avenue and D Street Overlay (Maag Avenue between F and G streets and D Street between Johnson and Maag avenues) Project is expected to begin in early May.

City officials remind motorists that extra care should be taken when entering work zones. Short delays can also be expected, so motorists are advised to plan accordingly.

Meanwhile, Oakdale City Council members were updated on the budget process at their Monday night meeting. According to City Manager Steve Hallam’s Power Point presentation to the council at its April 5 meeting, adjusting to the current fiscal realities include declining revenue, falling budget reserves, and likely, reductions in service.

The next budget workshop session will be on Monday, April 26 in the City Council Chambers.
