posted in: Construction Updates | 0

In this issue:

  • Westbound Chanate Road is open!
  • Drive safely when near construction
  • Update on project schedule

* NOTE:* scheduling information shown is subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances


Westbound Chanate Road is open!
The reopening of the westbound lane of Chanate Road went as planned, and the detour has been removed. The two emergency vehicle access points (at Terra Linda Drive and Andy Way) have been closed.

It’s important to note that even though all lanes of Chanate Road are open, there will be daily traffic control and temporary lane closures on that street and other nearby roadways into next summer as other project-related work takes place.

Due to the holidays, there will be no work on the Chanate Sewer Project December 24 through January 2, and there will not be a construction update next week. Work will resume on January 3, 2022 and our next construction update email will be provided on January 7, 2022.

Drive safely when near construction
As work continues into next year, please remember to drive safely when in the area, watch carefully for crews and equipment, and be aware of traffic control and flaggers.

Update on project schedule
The Chanate Sewer Replacement Project has always been planned to be an approximately two-year project (the detour being only a portion of that). The overall project remains on schedule for completion in summer of 2022.

Below is a summary of the primary work elements still to be accomplished (schedules are estimated and subject to change). As the project moves forward, work will involve single lane/2-way traffic control with flaggers; motorists should expect short delays. Trenches will be plated and roadways fully reopened to traffic at the end of each work day and on weekends.

  • Install sewer pipes on:
    • Chanate Road between approximately Lomitas Avenue and Slater Street – begins early January 2022, continuing for several weeks
    • Strawberry Lane – begins early January 2022, continuing for several weeks
    • Mendocino Avenue – begins late January 2022, continuing into mid-February
    • Lomitas Lane – begins early February 2022, continuing for several weeks
  • Replace water main on Chanate Road between Terra Linda Drive and Belvedere Way – timing and details are forthcoming
  • Repave/resurface roadways which were disrupted during construction – begins late February 2022, continuing for approximately one month (final timing dependent on weather and completion of other work)
  • Abandon the old sewer pipeline (filling with concrete) – expected to take place mid-June through mid-July 2022 (start date regulated by California Department of Fish and Wildlife)
