Prep work continues on Chanate Road for water main replacement
Potholing (small test holes in the roadway to identify underground utilities) will continue into next week on Chanate Road between Terra Linda Drive and Belvedere Way, in advance of the water main replacement at that location. Following that, additional prep work will take place, and the pipeline installation is expected to start later in February, continuing into early March. During that water main work, motorists should expect traffic control and minor delays.

Pipeline installation on Chanate Road from Lomitas Avenue to Slater Street underway
The sewer pipeline installation on Chanate Road between Lomitas Avenue and Slater Street is now underway. This work is expected to continue through February 18. Please be aware of changes in lane configurations, flaggers, and equipment.

Detour at Chanate Road/Belvedere Way/Humboldt Street now daytime only
The detour at Chanate Road/Belvedere Way/Humboldt Street, which was previously in effect 24/7, is now in effect only during working hours. After work hours and on weekends, the trenching is covered to provide for regular traffic movement. This daytime detour is anticipated to be in effect into early March.

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.

NOTE All schedules are subject to change due to weather or other circumstances

  • Install sewer pipes on:
    • Mendocino Avenue (primarily night work) – starts late February
    • Lomitas Lane – starts mid-March
    • Strawberry Lane – starts late March
  • Replace water main on Chanate Road between Terra Linda Drive and Belvedere Way – prep work is underway; pipeline installation expected to begin in late February
  • Repave/resurface roadways which were disrupted during construction – anticipated to begin late March 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)

Please exercise additional caution when traveling on Chanate Road and other streets where work is taking place. Watch for crews and equipment, be aware of signage, flaggers, and lane changes. Observe posted speed limits, and never drive faster than is safe for the conditions.
