PLEASANT HILL, CA (Aug. 4, 2023) — The Pleasant Hill City Council has awarded Phase I of the Downtown Street Tree Replacement Project to Sandstone Environmental Engineering, Inc. The project will provide streetscape improvements along Crescent Drive from Crescent Plaza to Contra Costa Boulevard.
Work has begun and will continue for the next few months. The contractor will be replacing approximately 35 unhealthy Bradford Pear trees with new drought-tolerant, non-flowering Chinese Pistache ‘Keith Davey’ trees. The contractor will also repair irrigation, expand existing tree wells, and install pavers adjacent to the replacement trees along Crescent Drive.
Businesses will be open and access will be provided to all businesses during construction. The project is anticipated to be completed by Fall 2023. Residents are encouraged to drive slowly through the work zone and follow all traffic control devices.
