Placeholder Image
Members of the public are invited to a public meeting tonight from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to hear about an improvement project in Keyes.

The county will soon install curb, gutter, and handicap curb returns as well as new street sections. Work will also include a storm drain collection system and related facilities, a five-pump lift station, and an auxiliary power generator. The existing drainage basin will be expanded, and an extension to the north of this basin will be excavated.

The meeting tonight will explain the work as well as allow the public to ask questions of the construction management team. The meeting will be held at Keyes Elementary School, 5680 Seventh Street. Maps and other exhibits pertaining to the project will be available to view.

The county is contracting with George Reed, Inc. to do the work. The project is being sponsored and funded by the Stanislaus County Redevelopment Agency and will be administered by the Stanislaus County Department of Public Works.

A groundbreaking ceremony at 10 a.m. on Saturday will kick off the work. A short ceremony will be held at Bonita Ranch Park, Lucinda and 10th Streets in Keyes. Refreshments will be served.

The work area is generally bounded by Highway 99 to the west, Anna Street to the north, the Bonita Ranch Subdivision to the east, and Nunes Road to the south.

Construction will last about two years.
