Downtown Parking Enforcement Reminder!

The City has received feedback from local businesses who have expressed the need to enforce our downtown’s long-established time parking limits in order to best support business owners, their patron’s and their businesses success. To support our local businesses, a third-party contractor, under the supervision of the Livermore Police Department, will actively enforce the long-established time parking limits in the downtown core. Please see the attached map for time limits. When parking, please pay attention to the signs that indicate the time limits in that particular space. Violators could face fines of $55.

We know parking is temporarily limited due to construction downtown, and we encourage downtown business owners and employees to park in long-term parking spaces so nearby spaces can remain open for customers eating at restaurants or patronizing any other downtown businesses.

A strong parking enforcement plan will contribute to the timely turnover of parking spaces and increase the availability of spaces for downtown patrons. We hope that you’ll join us in supporting our downtown businesses. The Livermore Police Department asks that you help spread the word about following the parking time limits while parking downtown.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation. Exciting additions are ahead for downtown Livermore!

Our contractor resumed work on 8/18 for the electrical trench that will power the garage. As shown in the attachment and the figure below, this work requires narrowing Veterans Way down to one way traffic east to west. We had this configuration a couple months ago when the trench was excavated.

This work is scheduled to be completed by September 22, 2023.

During this period deliveries can be made along Veterans Way as well as the loading zone next to the Alehouse patio.

Veteran's Way During Trench Work 


June 1, 2023

California Water Service (Cal Water) is pleased to inform you that the water infrastructure upgrade project is coming to a close in the Livermore downtown area. Thank you for your patience. The final portion of the project is to install finished paving over all areas of construction and slurry seal the street surface.

The finished paving work is scheduled to take place Monday through Thursday, 6/5/2023-6/8/2023. We are scheduled to conduct work during daytime hours, so we will be starting work at 7:00am. We want to ease some of the impact to the downtown area by shortening the time we spend in front of any business, so we plan is to isolate and complete the paving on each street separately.

The finished paving work will consist of two parts: grinding the existing asphalt and laying the new finished asphalt. Grinding will cause the most disruption to the surrounding businesses, so for the paving sections on J St and K St, between First St and Second St, the grinding will be finished by 11:00am.

The schedule for each day is listed below:

  • Monday, 6/5/2023 -
    • 2000 block of S. J St. - from First St to Second St.
    • 2100 block of S. K St. - from Second St. to Third St.
  • Tuesday, 6/6/2023 -
    • 2000 block of S. K St - from First St to Second St.
    • 2100 block of S. K St. - from Second St. to Third St.
  • Wednesday, 6/7/2023 -

2000 block of S. L St. - from First St to Second St.

Map attached to the end of the letter.

The paving scheduled for J St and K St will have the streets closed for the to all traffic for the day. We will display “No Parking” signs 72 hours in advance indicating the dates and times for vehicle relocation during construction. We are making every effort to minimize traffic disruption and complete each section of paving in the designated day.
