Each year, the City of Redwood City implements projects as part of its Sanitary Sewer Improvement Program. These projects are designed to improve safety, provide maintenance, and enhance operational efficiency and reliability of the community’s sewer infrastructure and service.
This year, the City expects to have its contractor start work on improving or refurbishing 14 pump stations in Redwood Shores. The work will take place from June through August of this year, and the City wanted to be sure that the Redwood Shores community members are well aware of the work that’ll be going on.
Sewer service will not be interrupted during of the construction period, and access to driveways and properties will be maintained at all times for residents, businesses, and emergency services.
The City is requiring the contractor to minimize the impact of construction activity in the neighborhoods. However, as with any construction project of this scope, some inconveniences are unavoidable. Please expect periodic lane closures, detours, some dust, and temporary parking restrictions during construction (look for “No Parking” signs). All motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists are asked to be particularly cautious when near a construction area.
Regular working hours for the project will be between 8 am and 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday. If necessary, and depending upon actual field conditions, work may be performed at other hours during holidays, off peak hours, at night, or on weekends as directed and approved by the City Engineer. The City will notify any neighbors who may be impacted by any changes in the work hours.
The City wishes to thank the Redwood Shores community members for their patience during this work. The end result of this work will be a more stable, reliable, safe, and efficient sewer system. Residents may feel free to contact Jimmy Tan of the City’s Community Development Department at (650) 780-7397 if there are questions or concerns regarding the construction.
