Construction of the Union Road roundabout is expected to begin in August
PASO ROBLES – At the April 19 City Council meeting, an update was given on completed, current and future capital and public works projects in Paso Robles.
Recent completed projects
Floors of the changing rooms of the municipal swimming pool
The floors of the changing rooms of the municipal swimming pool have been redone. The installation is one of the oldest that the city still preserves. Next, staff will replace the pool coping, which is the material used to cover the edge of the pool or the shell wall.
Fire station 3
The city plans to move forward with Fire Station 3 located on Union Road. Construction of the project was scheduled to begin on May 2. Newton Construction is starting to mobilize this week and construction activities are expected to begin next week. The project is expected to be completed in May 2023.
Uptown Family Park Water Feature Replacement
City staff are making progress toward replacing the current water feature at Uptown Family Park on 36th Street. Staff are waiting for the architect’s revised plan to be approved and hope to complete the project before the heat wave subsides.
Centennial Park Shade Sail
Centennial Park is about to install a new shade sail for the patio. Staff are waiting for the plan to be officially approved. The shade sail is currently in the maintenance yard and should be installed soon after approval.
Barney Schwartz Park Pump Track
Barney Schwartz Park pump track plans are being reviewed. The pump track is a looping, paved bike path currently being designed by the same company that created the skate park at the Tokyo Olympics. The project is expected to cost $350,000 and is funded by the REC Foundation.

Public works projects
Airport lights upgrade
Paso Robles Municipal Airport received new taxiway lights through an FAA grant.
West Side Street Pavement Rehabilitation
Some streets on the west side of Paso have had pavement rehabilitation. Additionally, the following streets received a Thin Maintenance Overlay (TMO): 2nd Street, 3rd Street, Oak Street, 11th Street, 19th Street, and 22nd Street.
Roundabout for Union Road and Golden Hill
Construction of the new roundabout at Union Road and Golden Hill will be delayed until August due to a delay in receiving materials. The project contractor was to mobilize in July. However, the first stage of construction is to install specific pipes underground. But these pipes should no longer be delivered before August. City staff say the upside is that the road will be open for the upcoming Fourth of July fireworks show at Barney Schwartz Park.
