The Church Street and Chestnut Street water main replacement project is advancing to the Chestnut Street side of the project. We will also have a construction presence on Church Street to finish cuts and caps. The Church Street work should be completed on or about the 7th of October 2019. Expect traffic delays and flagging operations as this part of the project continues. While OCWA proceeds with the cuts and caps along Church Street, there will be interruptions to the water service. OCWA will give 24 hours advanced notice of any planned shutdowns.
The Chestnut Street side of the project will start on Thursday, September 19th on the west end of the project. As work progresses there will be detours and traffic disruptions as we move to the east. The next planned road closure will at the Belmore Drive/Wilshire Drive and Chestnut Street intersections on Monday, September 23, 2019 at approximately 7:00 am, use an alternate route to avoid this intersection. Once again, you need to plan to detour around this stretch of Chestnut Street.
As the work progresses, we will update our website with road closures along Chestnut Street. Be aware that there will be continuous road closures and traffic delays along Chestnut Street as this project progresses. Use an alternate route to avoid congestion and delays.
Thank you for your cooperation as this project continues.
