Water main replacement:
The new water line is in the ground along the 400 block. The contractor has made good progress installing the new water line. Weather permitting, installation of the water line will be complete on the 500 block this week. The final tie-in work will be completed by SFWD at a later date. The tie-in work is usually completed overnight when there is less demand for water service. Any affected customers will be notified in advance.
The contractor continues sidewalk demolition work on the Westside of the 400 block. That work will continue on to the 500 block sometime next week. Demolition of the existing curb/sidewalk is necessary so that the utility relocation work can begin.
In the coming days, the contractor will mobilize a crew to begin relocating the sewer traps. The sewer traps will be relocated from their existing locations out towards the new curb/sidewalk.
