EBMUD Work on Lafayette Circle Upcoming 
Business owners and residents will recall the extensive work that was done on replacing the main water lines along Lafayette Circle last year.  Work on the western portion of Lafayette Circle from Mt. Diablo Blvd. to Hough was stopped as archeological discoveries delayed the scheduled completion of the project.  It looks as if EBMUD crews will be returning to Lafayette Circle to continue the work.  The proposed start date will be April 11.  This may result in some "one-way" traffic, no parking zones and flagmen attending to the traffic delays.  We will keep you up to date as we learn more about the plans.
