Reminder: Chanate Road westbound lane closure and detour extended into October
The detour of westbound traffic (including bicyclists) on Chanate Road between Terra Linda Drive and Humboldt Street is now anticipated to extend through October, 2021. We apologize for this extension, and appreciate your continued patience as we work to complete this critical infrastructure project.

We will keep you updated should there be any further changes to the schedule. Please note that once the detour is removed and westbound traffic on Chanate Road is restored, daily traffic control and temporary lane closures will continue as other project-related work takes place. The two emergency vehicle access points (Terra Linda Drive/Lake Park Drive, and Andy Way/Baldwin Way) which are temporarily open will be re-closed shortly after the detour is removed.

Temporary traffic signs

During the detour, only eastbound, one-way traffic on Chanate Road is available. Pedestrian access is maintained on the north side of Chanate Road. If possible, please avoid the general area of construction throughout the project period. When using the detour route, allow plenty of extra travel time. Click here for a map of the detour. The City’s Fire, Police, and Public Works departments, and the project team have 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.

Temporary traffic signal lights now in place will be used only in the event of an urgent public safety issue requiring westbound traffic movement or  emergency vehicle access on Chanate Road. Do not proceed when signal is red.

Please be sure to review the City’s Know Your Ways Out web page and neighborhood travel route maps.

Work continues underground and above-ground

Work continues underground and above-ground
Work is continuing, both underground installing large pipelines at the bottom of deep bore/ram pits, and above-ground as some bore pits are backfilled, and equipment/materials are moved between pit locations. On Chanate Road always use extra caution, proceed carefully, and be prepared for intermittent traffic delays. Watch for flaggers and work crews, drill rigs, cranes, excavators, trucks, and other equipment.

Please drive safely on Chanate Road and detour routes
This is a reminder to all who drive on Chanate Road in the project area, and/or on the detour roads of Parker Hill Road, Stagecoach Road, Fountaingrove Parkway, and Bicentennial Way:

  • Check your speed and be sure you are observing speed limits
  • Use extra caution
  • Allow additional time
  • Watch for work crews and equipment

If traveling through the two temporarily-opened emergency vehicle access points (Terra Linda Drive/Lake Park Drive, and Andy Way/Baldwin Way), proceed slowly and carefully – access is in the northbound direction only.

Thank you for your attention to safety on the the roads!
