Water Utility's E. Main St. Utility and Street Reconstruction Project

Project Update: August 10, 2018

The Main Street Reconstruction continues to progress towards the October 26th completion date. This week, the contractor completed installation of 24-inch water main between White Rock and Barstow, and performed pressure and bacteriological testing. Pending safe water samples, they will install and connect water services within the aforementioned limits to the new water main. Storm sewer main and inlet installation is also being worked on.

At the intersection of Hartwell and Main, a different contractor is relocating facilities for AT&T to accommodate the installation of new storm sewer. Boring under the railroad tracks for sanitary sewer and water main is scheduled to take place the week of August 20th.

Please note that on Sunday August 12th, there is a classic car show at Frame Park, and access is available off of White Rock Avenue. Also this weekend on Saturday August 11th, there is a charity benefit at Point Bar and access will be accommodated for that event as well.

The contractor continues to work to maintain traffic control for the detour throughout the project limits, and we ask for you continued patience and cooperation as we strive to ensure a safe project site, access to local businesses, and minimize disruption to the traveling public. Contact me directly with any questions or concerns.

E. Main St. Reconstruction Project - N. Barstow St. to Lombardi Way

The Main Street Utility & Street Reconstruction project will begin next week following Memorial Day. Traffic Control, erosion control, and pavement sawcutting will take place and sanitary sewer installation could begin late next week, all on Phase 1 of this project. Traffic control includes setting up the attached Phase 1 detour.

Please note that Phase 1 is from Whiterock to Lombardi Way. Phase 2, which consists of the entire project limits (Barstow to Lombardi) will begin on July 5, 2018. Our intent is to keep through traffic on Hartwell open as well as at Whiterock and Pleasant. The contractor will also work to accommodate local traffic to access businesses and residents, however there will be times where access may be inconvenienced for temporary periods as necessary due to construction operations. Feel free to contact me with any issues and questions you have.
