The Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (District) is in the process of relocating two segments of the ACWD water lines in preparation for near future flood control improvements along Laguna Creek.
One segment, approximately 30 feet of a 14” diameter water pipe, is located at the northwesterly corner of the intersection of Auto Mall Parkway and Fremont Blvd. The other segment, approximately 90 feet of a 30” diameter water transmission main, is located on Fremont Blvd. at the creek crossing.
The relocation work began in mid-September 2016, and is anticipated to be completed by early 2018. The District has been working closely with ACWD staff on the waterline relocation work to minimize impact to water service. District staff also work closely with City staff to minimize traffic impact due to the needed traffic control and temporary lane reconfiguration.
Construction hours are Mondays thru Fridays from 8 AM to 5 PM.
For construction information, please call the Public Works Agency's Construction Department.
