Construction and Maintenance Updates

Pathway construction - McInnis Parkway to Smith Ranch Road

SMART contractor Ghilotti Bros. Construction has recently begun work building a new bicycle/pedestrian pathway between McInnis Parkway and Smith Ranch Road. The pathway will be constructed on the east (airport) side of the tracks. See map below with construction zone shown in red.

Work will occur Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-7 p.m. As a part of construction, neighbors can expect dust and noise, including train horns.

As required by Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) regulations, trains will be sounding the horn when approaching areas where construction workers are engaged near the tracks.
