Danville set for summer street projects

Town, utility agency construction expected to impact traffic conditions

Drivers in Danville will see roadwork on several key town streets this summer with construction set on a variety of projects.

Town officials detailed a half-dozen projects underway or set to start as part of a traffic advisory this week.

Recycled water pipes: A project to bring recycled water to parts of Danville and San Ramon is underway and set to be completed later this month. Work has started on El Capitan Drive in Danville and Crow Canyon Road in San Ramon, with work scheduled on El Capitan between Crow Canyon and Oneida Circle.

The project is overseen by DERWA, the recycled water authority between the Dublin San Ramon Services District and East Bay Municipal Utility District.

PG&E, Crow Canyon Road: PG&E is working on a gas main replacement project on northbound Crow Canyon Road between Reedland Circle and Camino Tassajara. Crews are trenching to replace a 6-inch gas main.

Lanes will be reduced through the work area and may cause delays, officials said. Work hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and the project is set for completion in early August.

PG&E, Diablo Road: PG&E is set to conduct a gas main replacement during nighttime hours from July 20 to mid-August on Diablo Road between Green Valley Road and Clydesdale Drive. PG&E will maintain one lane, two-way traffic control during roadwork hours, which are set for 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Danville Boulevard: The town adding a slurry seal and restriping Danville Boulevard between Railroad Avenue and El Cerro Boulevard. The project, set to start in mid-July, is expected to take two weeks. Hours of work haven't been determined.

Railroad Avenue: From late July to mid-August, the town will conduct overlay work on Railroad Avenue downtown between Linda Mesa Avenue and Love Lane. The project will involve asphalt resurfacing, Americans with Disabilities (ADA) sidewalk curb ramp upgrades, decorative crosswalks and pavement markings.

Work hours to be determined. Once the main construction is completed, some night work will be scheduled for installation of brick-banded crosswalks through the project area, town officials said.

Camino Tassajara: In early August, the town will begin a project (which is partially federally funded) to repair and improve westbound lanes of Camino Tassajara between Sycamore Valley Road and the eastern town limits.

Lanes will be open in both directions during the work, and delays may be expected. Work hours are set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with expected completion in mid-September.

Regular street repaving: Danville residents will also see repaving work on several residential streets on a week-to-week basis as part of the town's ongoing pavement management program, which assesses pavement condition and assigns work to those streets in need of repair throughout the summer, according to town officials.
