Palo Alto Mayor Nancy Shepherd and other officials will host a ceremonial ground-breaking ceremony on Monday, March 17, at 4 p.m. to launch the California Avenue Transit Hub Corridor Streetscape Improvement and Water Main Replacement Project.

The event will take place at the plaza in the 361-371 block of California Avenue (in front of Starbucks) and will feature visual displays of the completed project.

The public is invited.

A timeline of the construction phases is nearly complete and will be available soon, according to a city press release.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
