Crockett Park Update

As I stated in a previous post the City of Oakley is planning to install a new play structure at Crockett Park that is designed to be “all access” and that is intended to appeal to families that have children with physical disabilities. As such, the accessible parking and the walkways that lead to the new play structure should be fully compliant with the latest access standards within the 2010 California and Federal ADA codes.

City staff performed the necessary ADA compliance survey and designed the construction improvement plans. The ADA compliance survey revealed that several areas of concrete access pathways have excessive cross slopes and must be removed and replaced. This includes the entire circular walkway surrounding the play structure, several areas of the access path, and the curb and sidewalk adjacent to nine parking spots that will be reconfigured to accommodate six new van-accessible spots. Wayne E. Swisher Cement Contractor, Inc. will perform the necessary work. Swisher has been advised that the play equipment has arrived and is ready to be installed, so they are prepared to begin work immediately.

Following the concrete work the parking lot will be repaired. The site survey revealed that three portions of asphalt that have lifted due to tree roots will need to be repaired. In addition the lot will be crack-sealed, a seal coat will be applied to the entire parking lot, and the lot will be re-striped and signed. G&S Paving will perform this work.
