Parks & Recreation Projects

October 2, 2023 UPDATE

Lane closures and flaggers will be on Overlook Drive and Stafford Road from October 2 through October 6 from 9 to 3 p.m. 

There will be significant delays. Please seek alternate routes, if possible.


  • During work hours, expect delays and plan extra travel time along Overlook and Stafford.
  • Watch for signage and obey the flagger's directions. 
  • Access to driveways or side streets may be temporarily closed when equipment needs to access that area.
  • Pedestrian connection will be available on Overlook with caution, flaggers will be spotting, and an alternate access route will be available.
  • Pedestrian access on Stafford Road is available via the pathway on the south side of the road.
  • Work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change. 
  • The City is making every effort not to interrupt bus schedules.









The pedestrian pathway along Stafford Road from the Pioneer Cemetery to Overlook Drive has been redirected to the South side of the road and is open for use.

To ensure public safety, marked signs are visible for the shared-purpose path. Both pedestrian and bike traffic is routed via custom flashing crosswalk signs to notify users to wait for vehicles to stop. Conversely, flashing lights will direct vehicle traffic to stop for foot and bike traffic.

Other installed safety features include:

·       Water-filled “jersey barriers” separating the road from the path,

·       ADA-compliant landings and pathways,

·       Pedestrian countdown timers,

·       Marked crosswalks and asphalt paved surfaces,

·       Expanded shoulder to accommodate a wider pathway.

Overlook Drive and Stafford Drive continue to utilize stop signals and walkways for pedestrian and vehicle passage. Also, the North side pedestrian path from Overlook Drive to Atherton Drive is closed with the construction of Rassekh Park. The community will need to use the existing South side path along Hazelia Field and Luscher Farm.

As always, we want the public to proceed cautiously as this new path is introduced to pedestrians and motorists. This pathway is temporary as work continues on the Recreation and Aquatic Center. In the fall of 2024, the path will be redirected to the north side in conjunction with the project's opening.
