New Water Pipes Will Cause Intermittent Traffic Disruption on Grand, Arroyo, and Lower Grand Avenues

EBMUD will be replacing 88-year-old water pipelines on Grand, Arroyo, and Lower Grand avenues.  –

Between summer 2017 and summer 2018 there will sometimes be lane closures on Grand Avenue between Arroyo Avenue and Oakland Avenue, and full road closures on portions of Arroyo Avenue and Lower Grand Avenue.

Attend the Thursday, August 24 community meeting from 7 to 8:30 pm at Beach School, 100 Lake, for more information.

The pipeline construction on Grand Avenue will require lane closures, but two-way traffic will be maintained at all times. Full road closures will be required on Arroyo Avenue and Lower Grand Avenue during certain periods.  Temporary asphalt paving will be applied daily, and is designed to provide a safe road surface during construction. Final paving will occur after pipeline work is completed. Work hours on Grand Avenue will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work hours on Arroyo and Lower Grand Avenues will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Water service interruption for Neighbors –

Crews will notify you, in person or with a door hanger, regarding any planned water service interruption to your property. After a service interruption, there may be air in the pipes that may loosen particles in your home plumbing. Close your toilet water supply valves, and then run water from your front hose bib, bathtub and/or cold water faucets for 1-3 minutes. This will dispel any air or loosened particles from your household pipes.

Problems or further Information Contact: Ben Glickstein,  Community Affairs Representative for EBMUD.
