SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Seven locations Sacramento officials deem "critical infrastructures" will be repaired and refurbished in coming weeks to address ongoing storm weather damage.
City utilities department workers plan to visit the infrastructures to remove debris and vegetation that could otherwise lead to local flooding.
Debris will also be removed from blocking service roads, ditches and fencing will be repaired along with inspection of water banks.
The seven locations include:
- Lower Morrison Creek at Sea Forrest (Maintenance starts March 27)
- Florin Creek at Franklin Boulevard (Maintenance starts March 29)
- Strawberry Creek at Bruceville Road to Hwy 99 (Maintenance starts March 29)
- Elder Creek at Franklin Boulevard to La Mancha Way (Maintenance starts April 6)
- Sacramento River at Riverside and Miller Park (Maintenance starts April 11)
- I-80 South Ditch at Norwood Avenue (Maintenance starts April 17)
- I-80 North Ditch at Norwood Avenue to Western Avenue (Maintenance starts April 24)
City officials say Department of Community Response crews will be doing outreach and connecting people who they encounter with services.
“City departments are working in collaboration to not only help ensure success of the projects, but also to use the opportunity to connect with and provide resources to vulnerable members of our community,” said Homeless Services manager Nick Golling. “The Department of Community Response will be working ahead of the Department of Utilities to provide resources in an effort to help people find placement in safe and stable programs in our community.”
