The contractor removed and replaced more than 900 feet of a critical water pipeline that
crosses the Serra Earthquake Fault in Millbrae.
The project contractor, Ranger Pipelines, Inc., has completed pipeline installation in Millbrae. Crews will begin restoring the site to how it looked prior to construction beginning in January. Restoration will begin with backfilling the new pipeline and restoring the disturbed grounds to pre-construction levels. The contractor will also begin moving construction related materials and equipment from the staging areas. Once this work is completed, the staging area and the San Francisco Public Utility Commission's (SFPUC)’s right-of-way will be re-seeded with a native plant-grass species.
Permitted construction hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Restoration activities near Ridgewood Drive are expected to last through early 2015. Please keep an eye out for intermittent lane closures and traffic changes on Ridgewood Drive.
The PPSU project includes the seismic upgrades of three Hetch Hetchy regional water delivery pipelines located in Northern San Mateo County. This project will ensure the pipelines can continue to deliver water to customers after an emergency.
