Work continues on the PCH/Del Prado Streetscape Improvement Project, mostly on the Del Prado side.

New street lights have been installed along Del Prado in the area between Ruby Lantern and the Post Office, and work is continuing on installing trees and finishing concrete. Parking is scheduled to be restored by Friday, April 3. Improvements moving from the post office to Golden Lantern have begun, including undergrounding utilities and sidewalk replacement. Replacement of streetlights, trees and landscaping is then scheduled to commence.

The phase of the project moving from Ruby Lantern to Violet Lantern is scheduled to commence around April 1. This will include the demolition of existing street improvements and construction of a new curb and gutter, along with a new sidewalk and other amenities similar to those being completed. Parking will be maintained on private lots, but may not be available at all points between the two streets.
