Construction has begun in the Midway area. This summer, crews are working to replace aging water and sewer pipelines on Midway Drive from Sports Arena Boulevard to Barnett Avenue. Work will occur at night at three different segments along Midway Drive. This work is anticipated to last until September. Then construction will move back to the Mission Bay area. Here are some project specifics:
Current Construction Area 1: Construction is currently taking place along Midway Drive from Sports Arena Boulevard to Kemper Street. Crews have begun potholing to locate utilities, afterward, they will begin installing a new 16-inch water main. There are no planned extended water outages during construction. Should the need for short service interruptions arise a separate public notice will be distributed to impacted properties.
Current Construction Area 2: Construction is currently taking place along Midway Drive between East Drive and Riley Street. Crews have begun potholing to locate utilities, once complete, they will begin installing a new sewer main.
Upcoming Construction Area 3: This summer, construction is anticipated to begin at the intersection of Rosecrans Boulevard and Midway Drive to install a new 16-inch water main. Work is expected to continue on Midway Drive in a southeastern direction for approximately 1,000 feet. There are no planned extended water outages during construction. Should the need for short service interruptions arise a separate public notice will be distributed to impacted properties.
Be advised that traffic control will be in place and may change. Traffic control along the Midway Drive construction corridor will shift northbound and southbound lanes to a single lane in each direction.
