Paving the parking lot...I'll believe it when I see it.

Obviously this is going to take all of next season to complete. See you at the point!

Well, you could’ve just asked. The construction of a new rigging area, extension of the Bay Trail, paved parking lot, and bathroom has finally started. Normally I would share your concern that the City of Berkeley construction projects face delays. Usually this is a matter of structure, where the City doesn’t push the schedule (usually done through liquidated damages if deadlines aren’t met) to try to get a better price. Here, the City has a grant that is going to expire, and they have to complete enough work to use those funds. City staff has estimated grading and installation of asphalt and rigging area complete by end of January with bathroom construction extending beyond that. Given the permit controls—sometimes downright silly—that restrict the season of construction, this is probably the best time to have the work done.

I will continue to monitor construction and push for a useable rigging and launch by March. I am not entirely without influence. Laughing

I'm hoping they repaved the main road? Because that was obviously worse than the parking lot

Checked Wed and no work done since mid Dec except tearing up around 30x100' on the east end exit of the short term boat parking lot. Molasses flowing is faster.
