Sewer pipeline installation work continues during westbound upper Chanate Road detour 
The detour of westbound traffic (including bicyclists) on Chanate Road between Terra Linda Drive and Humboldt Street will be in effect into September, 2021, to allow for installation of a large sewer pipeline under Chanate Road. If possible, members of the public should avoid the general area of construction throughout the project period. When using the detour route, please allow plenty of extra travel time. Click here for a map of the detour. During the detour, only eastbound, one-way traffic on Chanate Road is available. Pedestrian access is maintained on the north side of Chanate Road.

Looking Down Into Bore Pit

Although much of the current work is underground (picture at right shows workers in a ramming pit), motorists in the area should watch for flaggers and work crews, drill rigs, cranes, excavators, trucks, and other equipment, and be prepared for intermittent traffic delays. Click here for a cross section of typical bore pits similar to the work on Chanate Road.

In coordination with the City’s Fire, Police, and Public Works departments, the project team has prepared contingency plans to facilitate emergency situations that may occur during the detour of Westbound Chanate Road. If an evacuation is called for, construction on the project will be halted and, if necessary, the travel direction on Chanate Road (eastbound only during the detour) will be reversed to provide westbound-only movement for travel out of the area. Please be sure to review the City’s Know Your Ways Out web page and neighborhood travel route maps.
