A major construction project on Avenue 64 is set to begin on Jan. 8.

The project will have four stages. At a recent meeting, the Department of Transportation shared the details and project schedule for each stage with directly impacted households and the San Rafael Neighborhood Association. It’s important to understand the project schedule is subject to weather and other potential unforeseen impacts.
