Council to hear plans for Main Street

March 05, 2001|By ANTHONY LONGORIA, Staff Writer

BRAWLEY — Upcoming reconstruction of Main Street will be the topic of the California Department of Transportation's presentation at the Brawley City Council meeting here Tuesday night.

Caltrans plans a complete reconstruction of 10 miles of highways 78 and 86 from the New River bridge through Brawley to where highways 78 and 115 split east of the city.

The reconstruction was introduced at a Feb. 6 council meeting, at which the council requested a more thorough presentation examining the options for the project.

At issue are the starting date of the work and ways of minimizing the work's impact on business and traffic along Main Street. Council members also expressed concern with the possible impact on the harvest season, which starts in May.

The council also is expected to approve memorandums of understanding with city employees including the Brawley police management and sergeant's associations, firefighters and Teamsters. The three-year contracts include retroactive pay from July 1, 2000, as well as a 5 percent pay increase.

The Brawley City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers.
