Street resurfacing underway – project nearing completion!
The Chanate Sewer Project is quickly nearing completion, and one of the final phases – follow-up work after road resurfacing – is now underway. This includes finishing concrete work (curbs, gutters, sidewalks), finalizing the roadway and striping, and raising manholes and other elements to the new street surface level (“raising iron” – please note that this activity includes jackhammer work on small sections of the recently paved roadways). The follow-up work is anticipated to last for just a few weeks.

This week, asphalt work on Chanate Road and on Mendocino Avenue was completed, and follow-up work on those streets is underway. During follow-up work, please continue to watch for possible traffic control, flaggers, and equipment, and allow extra time to get to and from your destinations.

Updated overall project schedule
The two-year Chanate Sewer Replacement Project is on schedule for completion in July. Below is an updated summary of the primary work elements still underway or to be accomplished.

Reminder: all schedules are subject to change
due to weather or other circumstances

  • Follow-up work on resurfaced roadways:
    • Lomitas Lane, Lomitas Avenue, Strawberry Drive, Plum Drive, Chanate Road, Mendocino Avenue: follow-up work underway (includes some jackhammering where manhole levels are being raised to new street level)
  • Abandon the old sewer pipeline (filling with concrete) – expected to start by early July (start date regulated by California Department of Fish and Wildlife), with completion expected later in July.

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.
