Possible Traffic Delays on Polhemus Road during the Week of February 14th

The contractor for the SFPUC's New Crystal Springs Bypass Tunnel & Pipeline project will be performing trench work the week of February 14th on Polhemus Road near the South Shaft site between Bunker Hill and Crystal Springs in San Mateo.
The work is expected to take less than three days and will require one lane of traffic to be closed temporarily. A flag person will be on site to direct traffic.
The work may cause possible daytime traffic delays on Polhemus Road.
Thank you for your continued support while we upgrade your drinking water system.
