Update on the Carlson Boulevard project in the Richmond Annex

The center of the boulevard is being compacted and readied for paving and median installation that will include landscaping and an irrigation system.

The latest word on the completion of work on Carlson Boulevard is the final line on the subject in the City Manager’s report for Aug. 12-19: The project is expected to be “substantially complete by the end of September.”
Here’s the latest update:

Final grading of Carlson Boulevard is nearing completion this week. Cement treating the existing subgrade is set to begin the middle of next week. The cement treating operation involves the use of specialized equipment to apply and mix cement powder into the existing soil to stabilize and harden the subgrade. Following a watering/curing period, the median curbs will be placed, and of new asphalt will be placed over the new subgrade. Because this project is almost a mile long, this operation will allow the City to reduce the amount of asphalt by over 4,000 tons. As previously reported, the result is a net savings to the City of over $100,000 which has been earmarked for a new irrigation pipeline for the median and the beginning of previously un-funded landscaping. The Carlson Boulevard project is
currently scheduled to be substantially complete by the end of September.

    What trees will the city plant on the median strip on Carlson Boulevard? Does anyone know?

    I haven’t heard trees mentioned, just landscaping. I think budget will be a factor.
