Other Project News:

Please note that traffic lights will be set to flashing at the intersection of Chanate Road and Belvedere Way at Humboldt Street on Friday, January 29 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.  Setting the traffic lights to flashing red as part of the approved traffic control plan is the most efficient way to facilitate traffic control while performing work within the roadway.

The contractor for the sewer and water improvement project, Team Ghilotti, is continuing potholing (small excavations) to locate existing utilities in the project area. “No Parking” signs continue to be temporarily posted. These temporary parking restrictions allow the contractor access to perform potholing within the parking areas. Hours posted are between 7:30 am-5:30 pm Monday– Friday. These signs are temporary and will be removed once activity is completed. From February 5 through February 12, you may see these parking signs on Strawberry Drive and Upper Chanate Road (between Mendocino Avenue and Terra Linda Drive). Please drive carefully and watch for warning signs where they are conducting potholing activities.

Another Project Nearby:

We have received inquiries regarding another project close to Chanate Sewer Project. It is called The Terra Linda and Buena Vista Sewer and Water Replacement Project and is currently in the design phase and is scheduled to begin construction in summer of 2022. Crews have been making small excavations to locate existing underground utilities as part of the project design phase. This project will upgrade existing 6-inch to 10-inch water mains along Terra Linda Drive to remediate fire flow deficiencies. Aged sewer mains will be replaced congruently to minimize the potential for future deficiencies. Water and Sewer mains in Terra Linda Court will also be replaced. Once the mains have been replaced, the pavement will be reconstructed along Terra Linda Drive to Buena Vista and in Terra Linda Court.

Please share this information with others.
