University Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project
Dear Stakeholder,
You are subscribed to receive construction updates on the University Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project. This project will take place in the Mission Hills, Uptown, Hillcrest, University Heights and North Park areas of San Diego, with work occurring in phases at particular locations along the alignment of the project.

Here's what's happening:


 On Washington Street between Albatross and Dove Streets


On Sunday night, October 4, 2015 at 9 p.m. the crews began work to install the temporary water source (high line pipes) on Washington Street between Albatross and Dove Streets. The high line is a two-inch temporary, above-ground pipe which is installed along the curb. Please exercise caution when parking along the high line as tires can rupture the pipe.


Upon completion of the high line installation, your property/building will be connected to the high line pipes. This work is tentatively scheduled to happen on Sunday night, October 11 at 9 p.m. This will allow you to have water service during this work and until the water is provided by the new water main.


Remaining work in this area will continue through the end of October and it includes the installation of service connections (individual pipes that run from the water main to each property).
During construction, anticipate temporary inconveniences. Please exercise caution in the work zone and note that:
  • There will be pipe, fittings, equipment and storage containers staged along the work zone.
  • When required, temporary "No Parking" signs will be posted 48 hours before construction activities start.
  • Vehicles parked in violation of the signs WILL BE TOWED.
  • Road closures, detours and restricted access will occur between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Sunday through Thursday nights, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Yellow "No Parking" signs will be used for night work.

Orange "No Parking" signs will be used for day work.

This Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project will replace about four miles of old, deteriorating, cast iron water mains with new PVC pipes. PVC pipes offer improved service reliability and a longer service life. Improvements also include new valves, fire hydrants and service lines (the pipes running from the main to each residence or business). Accessible curb ramps are included in this project as well.
Streets that have been excavated as part of this work will be slurry sealed as phases are completed. Any areas of vegetation or landscaping that are affected will be replaced.
This project is expected to last about three years.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while work progresses on this project. Every provision will be taken to quickly and efficiently complete the work.
