Late Night Work Required to Install Water Line for Uninterrupted Service

A late night I-680 on-ramp closure is scheduled for next week to install a temporary water line. This installation will ensure that residents in the area continue to receive an uninterrupted water supply throughout construction.  

On Tuesday, Jan. 22 (after the Martin Luther King Holiday on Monday, Jan. 21), the I-680 on-ramp at eastbound Mission Blvd., will be closed starting at midnight and will reopen at 5 a.m. This timeframe has been identified to ensure that motorists are able to access the freeway before the heavy commute times.

Work will take place near the highlighted area above.

Why Night Time Work?
Much of the regional water delivery pipeline in need of replacement is located directly under the I-680 freeway and the on/off-ramps off Mission Blvd. In order to access this pipeline, a phased traffic handling plan will be in place. This overnight on-ramp closure is the first traffic diversion that this project will require along this busy traffic corridor.
The SFPUC, Caltrans and other governmental agencies have been working with the contractor on this phased traffic approach plan, and Caltrans has permitted this work. 

Detour Information For This Work:
To detour, use Warm Springs Blvd. (North), and make a right at Auto Mall Parkway to merge onto the I-680 North.
This closure is necessary to complete the temporary water line installation work  to ensure water supply to the local area. All work that takes place along the I-680 freeway or on the on/off-ramps are permitted by Caltrans. 

What To Expect?
This night time work will involve some road excavation on the on-ramp, so crews can install the temporary water line. Truck traffic and noise from machinery are expected.
Homeowners are encouraged to call our 24-hour answering service for concerns regarding this overnight work at 866-973-1476.
