Utility work to impact traffic in downtown Danville

EBMUD continues its pipeline replacement, with work set to take place at night as well as during day

Drivers and pedestrians can expect utility work to affect downtown traffic this week, Danville officials announced.

The East Bay Municipal Utility District will be doing construction almost around-the-clock as part of its ongoing water-main replacement project.

EBMUD will work at nights, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., at four intersections: Diablo Road and Front Street, Hartz Avenue and Diablo Road, Hartz and Linda Mesa avenues, and Hartz and Railroad avenues.

Intermittent street closures will occur during the nighttime work. Detour signs will be posted and drivers may experience minor delays, town officials said.

EBMUD will also be working during the daytime to lay asphalt on Hartz Avenue, between Diablo Road and Linda Mesa Avenue. Crew members will be controlling traffic, but two-way traffic will be maintained during work hours, according to town officials.

In a separate utility project, AT&T worked to replace a utility vault along the sidewalk at the northwest corner of Hartz and Prospect avenues on Tuesday, town reps said. A pedestrian corridor was established to keep open access to businesses in the work zone.
