Petaluma Blvd South Water Main Replacement

Project Description

This project involves installing approximately 1,500 feet of 8-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) water main to replace deteriorated 4-inch cast iron water main on Petaluma Blvd. South between D Street and Mountain View Avenue. Installation of this water main will improve the pressure for fire protection in the area, as well as the reliability of this piece of aging critical infrastructure which is nearing the end of its useful life. The project also includes installation of new water services to users along the project area to meet City requirements, and new fire services for commercial buildings.

Project Manager: Dan Herrera, Senior Civil Engineer

Traffic Impact

The project will impact Petaluma Blvd South. The water main installation work will close one southbound lane in the area of construction, and water service installation will impact both southbound and northbound lanes in the immediate vicinity of the work.  All traffic restrictions will be posted for drivers with signage. Ingress and egress to homes and businesses will be maintained. Traffic control and routing measure will be implemented to maintain through traffic in the area.
