Sewer Main Improvement Project Affecting Junipero Serra Blvd., Bruno Ave., and Serramonte Blvd.

Starting soon, residents will see the City's contractor working on a Sewer Main Improvement Project. Parking along Junipero Serra Blvd., Citrus Ave., Bruno Ave., and Serramonte Blvd. will be temporarily impacted during construction.

Dated "No Parking" signs will be posted at least 48-hours in advance at some of the parking spaces. Please do not park where these signs are posted as vehicles may be towed when work starts. Access to your driveway will be maintained at all times; however, please allow for extra time in the event work is occurring in the street immediately adjacent to your driveway.

Construction work hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Bruno Ave. and Serramonte Blvd. and from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Junipero Serra Blvd. However, the contractor may perform work at night on Junipero Serra Blvd. and Serramonte Blvd. to alleviate daytime traffic. Night work on Junipero Serra Blvd. would occur from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am, Sunday through Thursday nights. The I-280 Northbound John Daly Blvd. off-ramp near Citrus Ave. may be closed during the night to work on Junipero Serra Blvd. Night work on Serramonte Blvd. would be from 9:00 am to 6:30 am, Monday through Friday nights. 

The Sewer Main Improvement Project will replace existing vitrified clay (VCP) sewer mains with new larger capacity polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sewer mains. The old pipes were susceptible to groundwater infiltration and sewer backups due to cracks, leaking joints and blockages from root intrusion or other causes. The contractor will be digging in the street to install the pipe, replace manholes and reconnect existing sewer laterals to the new pipe. The contractor will restore the street surface and pavement markings after the utility work is completed.

The work is scheduled to begin in late-March 2016 and is expected to be substantially completed by June 2016. Exact dates of construction work will be posted at least 48 hours prior to the sewer main replacement and street work.
