Detour at Chanate Road/Belvedere Way/Humboldt Street to be removed next week
The primary work in the area of the “triangle” at Chanate Road/Belvedere Way/Humboldt Street is wrapping up, which will allow the removal of the detour that is currently in place at that location. Motorists can expect to see the detour removed by the end of next week.

Strawberry Drive sewer pipeline installation rescheduled to begin late March
To allow for the most efficient scheduling of work crews, the installation of sewer pipeline on Strawberry Drive has been rescheduled to begin in late March. Once underway, that work will continue for an estimated one-to-two weeks. Affected residents on Strawberry Drive are being notified of this work and the updated schedule. Thank you for your patience with this schedule change!

Potholing on Chanate Road continues
Potholing (small test holes in the roadway to identify underground utilities) is continuing for another week on Chanate Road between approximately Belvedere Way and Terra Linda Drive, in preparation for installation of the new water main. Pipeline installation is expected to start in mid-February, continuing into March. During that water main work, motorists should expect traffic control and minor delays.

Updated overall project schedule
The two-year Chanate Sewer Replacement Project is on schedule for completion in summer of 2022. Below is an updated summary of the primary work elements still to be accomplished. As the project moves forward, work on and around Chanate Road will generally involve periodic 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.
