Removal of Construction Materials from North Shaft in San Mateo

With the seismically advanced New Crystal Springs Tunnel and Pipeline in service, the project team is in the process of demobilizing their equipment and materials from the construction sites in San Mateo.

Over the next several weeks, crews will begin removing construction related materials from the North Shaft site located near the intersection of Crystal Springs Road and Polheumus Road in San Mateo. Crews will remove equipment, grade the soil on site, backfill soil, remove fencing and remove the k-rail concrete protective structures along the site of the roadway.

Please drive the posted 10 m.p.h speed limit on Crystal Springs Road and be aware of workers, trucks and equipment in or near the roadway during this demobilization work.

Once they remove the posted 10 m.p.h speed limit signs, the speed limit will return to normal.
