That also means one-way controlled traffic, slowdowns, and backups throughout the day. Meanwhile, Jones says repaving of the roundabouts for both projects has been postponed to next spring, since it was to be done at night, to minimize disruptions to motorists, but it’s been too cold. Also being completed on Thursday is a stretch of Colfax Avenue, with funding coming from a separate pot of city money, as well as from Cal Trans. Measure E was a one-cent sales tax increase that replaced Measure N, which was passed in 2012. It also funds law enforcement and firefighter functions, including vehicles.
