EBMUD to begin water-main replacement in downtown Danville

Project set to get underway Monday (Jan. 6) along Diablo Road

Traffic could be moving a bit slower through downtown Danville for the next couple months as crews work to replace the water main running along Diablo Road and Hartz Avenue.

The East Bay Municipal Utility District project, which is set to start Monday morning (Jan. 6), will be completed in sections, resulting in varying lane diversions as work progresses, according to town officials. The replacement is scheduled to wrap up in March.

Monday's work is set to occur on Diablo Road between Front Street and Hartz Avenue from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. One lane of traffic will be available in both directions through the project area during work hours, town representatives said.

Officials ask motorists to proceed with caution and allow extra time when traveling near the project area.

It's about time. Major line breakage over the last few years has caused major problems and a significant loss of precious water. I'm glad that Danville has applied enough pressure one EBMUD (no pun intended)

I'm just waiting for someone to turn this into a diatribe against the Danville city counsel, "stack and pack" housing, "those people," "Agenda 21," etc.

I wish our city planners would consider the school year calendar when making decisions about this type of work. Last spring, a student was hit by a car during the repaving of the road @ Orange Blossom and El Cap. The student (fortunately) was OK. However, it never makes sense to me to schedule work near schools during the school year. Why not do non-school area work during the school year and school area related work during the summer? Traffic congestion in/near SRVHS is already a mess. This will compound it. I am NOT against upgrades, improvements, or infrastructure repair. I just think it would be great for the scheduling to consider the school year calendar and the impact on the families.
