Construction Progress

November/December 2014

This newsletter is part of Enloe Medical Center’s commitment to keep you informed about significant construction activity for our expansion project. Updates for the next two months include:

Update on City’s road work project: Street closures, parking – D.H. Slater & Son Inc. and its subcontractors are now working on the City of Chico’s street and storm drain improvement project in our mutual neighborhood. We are informed that the project is expected to continue through November and will take place from 6th Avenue to 8th Avenues and Esplanade to Arcadian Avenue.

  • According to D.H. Slater & Son, this phase begins on 7th Avenue from Esplanade to Arcadian Avenue, with street closures occurring between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on weekdays (excluding holidays). There will be no parking 24 hours a day.
  • The next phase will close Magnolia Avenue between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue, and will begin immediately after the first phase.

D.H. Slater & Son tells those who live or park in the construction zone to park on the adjacent cross streets. It also encourages residents to build extra time into their schedule and plan alternate routes to avoid the construction zone. For those who live in the construction zone, the company offers escorts to and from their homes. Questions or concerns can be directed to Brandon Slater at his office, (530) 893-3333, or cell phone, (530) 519-7084; or to Justin Eckenrod at (530) 519-7084. The City of Chico personnel can also be contacted at (530) 879-6900 for additional information or to express concerns. Brandon Slater sends apologies for any inconveniences this project may cause.

You are invited: Enloe Tree Lighting – We hope you will celebrate the season with us at our annual tree lighting event on Monday, Dec. 1. Bring the whole family to meet the jolly old elf himself and watch as we light the tree for the first time this year! Enjoy holiday music with the Children’s Choir of Chico, a cup of hot coco and a cookie while you take in the spirit of the season. It all takes place on front lawn of the medical center, along the Esplanade. This event opens at 5:15 p.m., and the program begins at 5:30 p.m. The tree lighting will be cancelled in the event of rain.

While we do our best to project dates, they are subject to change due to factors including weather and permits.
