Pipeline Project begins April 26

camino tass project1 

As the spring season starts winding down, road construction will be ramping up along Camino Tassajara.  The US Army Corps of Engineers, in conjunction with the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) is beginning work on their multi-million dollar recycled water pipeline project.   Over the course of two months, crews will be excavating trenches along Camino Tassajara and in Blackhawk to house the new pipeline. 

Over 1200 residents of Danville and Blackhawk were mailed notices informing them of the upcoming work and the potential for road lane SRVRWP-Phase 3A Map-Danville  Blackhawk-2011closures. The project is set to take place on Crow Canyon Road 700 feet north to Tassajara Ranch Drive, and Camino Tassajara between Tassajara Ranch Drive and Blackhawk Road. 

The project is set to begin April 26,2011 and last through June 8, 2011.  During that time, work will be done Monday to Friday between 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. when school is in session and 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. when school is out. 

Any neighborhoods to be affected by roadwork will be notified within 48 hours of the work being scheduled.  In addition, crews that will cover trenches with metal plates at the end of the work day and will complete street repairs as quickly as possible once the work is completed. 

As a result of the work being done, traffic signals along Camino Tassajara from Tassajara Ranch Drive to Hansen Lane will be on fixed signal timing as opposed to the normal 'green time' provided by having sensors buried in the road surface. This may cause some additional delays through the construction area, but will end by next week when the sensors are re-implanted in the surface. 

Concurrently with the pipeline project, the Town of Danville will be coordinating the remaining pavement resurfacing work they are conducting as part of the Camino Tassajara/Crow Canyon SAFETEA-LU project.
