The roadway surrounding Bank of the West has turned into a construction zone during the past couple of weeks, as a crew from Fremont-based Pacific Surfacing Inc. installs a new sidewalk around the bank at 5 Plaza.
The new sidewalk will wrap around the bank along North Del Puerto Avenue to the east, North Third Street to the west and Plaza Circle to the south. New ramps and stairs are being installed in front of the bank in conjunction with revisions to the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a couple of trees also will be replaced, according to Tony Ayala, facilities manager for Bank of the West’s Mid-Valley Region. The project started late last month and is expected to be completed sometime next week after concrete is poured on Monday, April 29, Ayala said.
