Manila Ave Storm Drain Repair project, C5036.9

Construction of the Manila Avenue Storm Drain Repair Project, No. C5036.9, is scheduled to begin in mid August 2022. The City has contracted with FJ&I Engineering, Inc. to complete the work. Portions of the existing shallow storm drain crossing Manila Avenue near the Ohlone Trail have collapsed causing a reduction in the capacity to the storm drain system for the area, along with undermining of the roadway.  The project will repair and upgrade the existing capacity and strength of the existing storm drain system, as well as repair impacted portions of the roadway. For more information, please contact the City’s consulting project manager, Gerardo Avila, at

Arlington Boulevard Guardrail Replacement Project, N0. C3081.A 

Construction of the Arlington Boulevard Guardrail Replacement Project, N0. C3081.A is scheduled to begin in late August 2022. The City has contracted with Dirt and Aggregate Interchange Inc. to complete the work. The guardrail systems on Arlington Boulevard have been severely damaged by vehicle collisions at two locations: 1) south of Brewster Drive (south leg) and 2) south of Cutting Boulevard. Arlington Boulevard has a considerable curve at both locations and the guardrail systems are necessary to prevent out of control vehicles from careening over the embankment at the edge of the roadway. The project will replace guardrail segments at both locations.  For more information, please contact the City’s Acting Engineering Manager, Roland Lambert, at

the Arlington park improvements project 

The Arlington Park Improvements Project will implement the high priority recommendations in the 2019 El Cerrito Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan. The project scope includes renovation of essential components of the clubhouse: interior painting, flooring, new windows and new doors, fixtures and counter tops and ADA improvements. Picnic site improvements being considered include landscape enhancements, graded and concrete areas around picnic tables, accessibility improvements and installation of new trash & recycling receptables and similar amenities. The project aims to enhance and improve an existing neighborhood park to maximize its use, improve environmental and ecological services while reducing maintenance costs, encouraging volunteer efforts, and meeting multiple State of California Natural Resources Agency Department of Parks and Recreation Office of Grants and Local Services (OGALS) goals. The project components will be evaluated and refined with public input and based on available budget. The design effort is anticipated to begin in early October 2022.
