Mr. Clendenin,

Thank you for the email.

The city is aware of the issue created on Santa Cruz as part of the crossing improvement project. Staff is currently working on a solution to the issue. It will likely involve regrading some of the asphalt in the area. I don't have a timeline for implementation, but we hope to resolve soon.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

Thank you,

Chip Taylor
Public Works Director
