The project was initially scheduled to be completed by April 2020 but multiple extensions were given to the previous contractor, Klassic Engineering and Construction Inc., before the city ultimately found it in default of the contract on Aug. 17.
The Alamitos Beach concession stand project was part of an overhaul of the city’s beachfront concession areas. The ones at Junipero and Granada Beaches have already been completed and have food vendor contracts approved.
The Alamitos Beach and Granada Beach stands were not part of the last round of contracts approved by the council in June but they could have new vendors soon.
The concession stands at Mother’s Beach, Bayshore Beach and Junipero Beach all had contracts approved by the council Tuesday night with Louisiana Charlie’s, Grill ‘em All and Saltwater Deck winning the contracts at those respective locations.
The Long Beach City Council could approve agreements for the stands at Bayshore, Mother’s and Junipero Beach Tuesday night as well as a contract with Pedal Movement to operate bike rentals stations along the city’s coastline.
With the Alamitos concession stand already under construction, the city will now focus on the Granada and Junipero locations. The latter are expected to be done by summer 2020.
