Robinwood / Denise Storm Drain Repair & Road Stabilization Project:  The project scope involves repairing a severely eroded slope that is causing distress on Robinwood Road and replacing and extending a storm drain line from the edge of pavement down to the creek below.  The repairs made as part of this project will help prevent future roadway failure protect the utilities located within it.  Council awarded this contract to Farallon Company at the May 2013 Council Meeting.  Due to right of access delays the project had been on hold.  Construction started in early September, with installation of storm drain improvements and drilled piers and concrete grade beams being completed by the end of October.  Miscellaneous improvements will continue through mid-November.  Staff anticipates that this project will be placed on the January council meeting agenda for project acceptance.
