Construction on the Jean Sweeney Open Space park has been delayed.

Start of construction on the Jean Sweeney Open Space park has been delayed.

City officials had hoped to start construction last month on the Cross Alameda Trail portion of the park, but Caltrans, which administers the grant fund for the trail, has taken longer than expected to give the go-ahead to go out to bid for a contractor.

According to Amy Wooldridge, director of the Alameda Recreation and Parks Department, who responded via a spokesperson, it’s not uncommon with construction projects, especially ones with federal funding managed by Caltrans, for timelines to change.

Wooldrige had originally thought that they would have their E-76 (authorization from Caltrans) to proceed much earlier, and they have been working closely with Caltrans staff to ensure that they have everything they need to issue it as soon as possible.

Once authorization is received, the department will go out to bid. It typically takes three to four months to get a contractor under contract.

A tentative new construction start date is “early 2017” – probably spring.
