Today's EBMUD Pipeline Project/Lafayette Circle
Update

Beginning today, Monday, June 8,  the EBMUD crew has moved its operations onto Brook Street.  They will be working up on Brook/Moraga Rd. for the next month.  This will cause some delays when traveling in that area.  Again, a flagman will be used for traffic and circulation.  There were some problems with the work they were doing on Lafayette Circle (west end) and plan to be back soon to continue that work.  No word yet on when Lafayette Circle/ Hough will be repaved.
