Beginning June 25, 2018, and continuing through December 2018, San Juan Water District will be replacing an aged 10-inch diameter steel water pipeline in Douglas Blvd, between the intersections of Auburn Folsom Road and Mooney Road. This project will shut down at least one of the eastbound lanes to traffic at certain times, potentially causing traffic delays. We recommend that drivers visit this site regularly for updates on traffic control, and consider alternate routes or times for travel.
The Douglas Boulevard Pipeline Replacement Project includes the following activities:
- Replacement of an old 10-in steel main, and 23 service connections
- Installation of approximately 4,000 lineal feet of new pipeline, using open trenches or pipe bursting (click here for a video on pipe bursting)
- Work will be done on Douglas Blvd from Auburn Folsom Road to Mooney Drive
The following graphic provides a visual representation of the project area.
The project is being constructed in four (4) phases to reduce the water service outage times to our customers. The first phase includes the crossing of the road intersection of Douglas Blvd at Auburn Folsom Road which is a high traffic location, especially during the morning and evening commute hours. Phase 1 will be constructed from June 25th through July 30th.
The following map shows the traffic control measures that will be in place Monday-Friday 8:30 am through 3:30 pm:
