Water main replacement on Chanate Road scheduled to begin March 8
Replacement of the water main pipeline on Chanate Road between Terra Linda Drive and Belvedere Way is scheduled to get fully underway on March 8. The excavation of trenches, laying of pipeline, and backfilling the trenches will continue for about two weeks, followed by an additional two weeks of installing main line extensions, hydrant connections, and water service lines. During this work, motorists should expect daytime traffic control and minor delays.

Work on Strawberry Drive scheduled to start late next week
Installation of sewer main line and laterals on Strawberry Drive is anticipated to start by the end of next week (anticipated March 10 or 11), and to continue for approximately one week. Please watch for crews and equipment.

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 motorists should watch for work crews, equipment, and periodic temporary traffic control. Motorists may experience short delays. Trenches will be plated and roadways fully reopened to traffic at the end of each work day and on weekends.
