UPDATE

 

We have successfully crossed Westshore Blvd. with the box culvert and all other utilities.  Final restoration is underway for all homes east of Occident.  Paving is scheduled for Thursday, March 7, 2019, and will signify completion of the majority of the work in that area.  Some minor work at the outfall remains to be completed.

 

We are now moving eastward on Estrella with our operations and have started restoration work on the east side of Westshore.

 

The City has agreed to leave Estrella, Clear and Trask closed to all but local traffic to minimize traffic in the work areas.

 

We plan to start water line relocations in the Estrella/Manhattan intersection and Neptune/Manhattan intersection starting in June and lasting two months.

 

We wish to thank you for your patience and will continue to work with you.
