Work in Progress
Pea gravel has been spread and leveled on the field play surface and the completion of perimeter trench drains are planned this week.  The installation of new goal post foundations, pole vault pit, LAX sleeves, and D-ring concrete are also scheduled this week. The Witter Field renovation completion date is weather dependent and remains Monday, 1/8/24, after PUSD winter break.

Winsor Driveway Gate Closure
The pedestrian access gate on the Winsor Avenue driveway, which many residents use to access the Piedmont Park off-leash dog area, will be closed for your safety during working hours Monday-Friday from 7:30am to 4pm.  The gate will be locked and chained during those periods.  Please respect this closure since construction activity on the driveway could pose a safety hazard to pedestrians and dogs.  We will keep the gate open for pedestrian access to the off-leash dog area outside of working hours and on weekends.  Please email Pete Palmer if the gate is chained outside of designated working hours.

Drainage Calculations
A 54 page City approved encroachment permit and Verde storm water report was issued on 8/25/23.  Per the City’s request, PUSD has reduced the peak flow rate for the Witter Field area by approximately 20%, largely by detaining the water from storm events in the subsurface piping and rock drainage profile.

Parking Updates

Palm, Park View, upper Winsor - Parking restrictions will remain in place on Palm, upper Winsor, and parts of Park View. Bothman is stating the restrictions need to remain due to the frequent trucking of materials (trench spoils out, drain rock in) and the large equipment deliveries. Pete Palmer will provide an update no later than next Friday, 11/3, and advise if parking restrictions can be lifted the following week.

El Cerrito - Parking restrictions remain lifted on El Cerrito.  Restrictions will be reinstated Thursday 11/9 through Tuesday 11/14.  No parking signs will be placed on El Cerrito Wed, 11/1.  The restrictions will be needed to accommodate the drill rig and concreate and material delivery trucks for the installation of the football scoreboard foundation and steel columns.

The District remains committed to providing regular updates to the community regarding the Witter Field renovation.  We understand that construction is inconvenient, and disruptive and appreciate your continued patience, understanding, and cooperation as we complete this important project.
