Construction Update: February 2020

More than 32,750 feet of new drinking water pipeline have been installed to date, which will help ensure all Peninsula residents continue to have safe, reliable water service for everyday and emergency needs.

Here’s an overview of ongoing project work –

Crews are now in the second phase of 24/7 traffic control, which includes construction delineators and dual yellow striping along the southbound lanes of Crenshaw Boulevard, with one lane open in each direction at all times. Traffic control will remain in place until approximately early March and work will continue from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., with periodic Saturday work. For graphics depicting the second phase of traffic control on Crenshaw Boulevard, please visit our Crenshaw Construction Traffic & Info page here.
