Suisun City Road Projects – Street Closures

Construction on Suisun City’s Asphalt Rubber Cape Seal and Traffic Calming Projects are anticipated to begin next week. The projects will provide asphalt rubber cape sealing, digout repairs, and curb ramp upgrades on Whispering Bay Lane from Josiah Circle to Francisco Drive, as well as on Village Drive from Highway 12 to Railroad Avenue. This represents approximately 200,000 square feet of pavement resurfacing. The project scope also includes restriping Village Drive with buffered bicycle lanes. In addition, traffic calming improvements will be made at the existing crosswalk on Whispering Bay Lane fronting Crystal Middle School to make the crossing safer for students, school staff and all members of the community. Traffic calming improvements at that location consist of rectangular rapid flashing beacons, high visibility crosswalk, concrete curb bulbout, and curb ramp upgrades.

The City has awarded the construction contract to VSS International, Inc. in the amount of $736,436. The pavement resurfacing portion of the project is funded by Senate Bill 1 (SB1) allocations and the traffic calming improvements is funded by Transportation Funds for Clean Air (TFCA) grant allocations.

On Tuesday, 7/26, and Thursday, 7/28, asphalt rubber cape sealing will be performed on the project street segments. This will require temporarily closing off the project street segments to vehicular traffic during the work hours of 7 am through 6 pm on those two days. During construction activities, all road users are encouraged to comply with the signage related to the construction and to use the detours roads adjacent to the project streets. While there will be minor inconvenience in the short term, this street revitalization project will be a significant benefit to the city’s residents and guests.

According to City Manager, Greg Folsom, “These projects will provide a significant improvement to the roadway and improved mobility through these areas, as well as providing increased safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.”

McCoy Creek Trail Phase 2 Ground Breaking

Suisun City, CA – July 13, 2022

A ceremonial ground breaking was held on July 12 to celebrate the beginning of the construction of Phase 2 of the McCoy Creek Trail in Suisun City.

Wilson, Supervisor Jim Spering, Councilmember Wanda Williams, Councilmember Mike Hudson, former Councilmember Mike Segala, STA Director Daryl Halls, and City Manager Greg Folsom, as well as speakers from the Suisun City Youth Commission.

The project will be a 3/4 mile extension of the existing McCoy Creek Trail, which consists of a Class I bikeway along the west bank of the McCoy Creek between Highway 12 and Pintail Drive. The project will extend the existing trail, which was completed in 2008, by constructing a Class I pedestrian/bicycle path along the west bank of the McCoy Creek canal from Pintail Drive to the Laurel Creek canal. The project will then cross over Laurel Creek with a prefabricated bridge from the south bank to the north bank (roughly ending at the dead-end of Humphrey Drive) and will continue along the north bank of the Laurel Creek canal to Blossom Avenue.
