Yesterday I shot the 4th and final drone video of the Bay Road Improvement Project construction update series.
The Bay Road Improvement Project is a completed project in East Palo Alto which improved underground pipes and above ground streetscape along Bay Road. Construction began sometime in 2020 and completed in December 2021 / January 2022. I moved to East Palo Alto during the construction period, so I did not participate in the planning of the project. I was very curious about the project, mainly due to 4 or 5 1-2 month construction delays and because I would use the road to walk, run, bike, and drive everyday.
The main information I found on the project was on the City's website where the approved architectural Master Plan was, and I read it and admittedly was very confused by 80% of the information since it is very engineering heavy. I could not find any information on the construction timeline on the City website or on community forums like the East Palo Alto Neighbors Facebook group. In order to find information, I talked to the construction workers and foremen on a weekly basis and then shot my own drone footage and packaged the information into a series of voiceover-annotated videos to share with the community in our Facebook group. Below are the YouTube links to the videos, since you would not be able to see the Facebook group link unless you were in the group. Note that the videos that I posted in the Facebook group received a lot of engagement, whereas the YouTube videos did not since those links were never shared until now.
