South San Francisco Construction Update

Baden Valve Lot Construction 

On Monday, January 12, the PPSU project contractor, Ranger Pipelines, Inc., will begin replacing three critical valves within the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC)’s right of way in South San Francisco between Southwood Drive and West Orange Avenue.

These valves are critical to the Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System in the Peninsula. As a result, the contractor must replace all three valves in five days in order to put them back into operation by Friday, January 16.

With this limited construction time frame, the contractor will work 24-hour shifts for this five day period. To minimize noise impacts, the contractor will refrain from using loud equipment and back-up alarms after 8 p.m. 24-hour noise monitoring will occur to ensure noise does not exceed the City of South San Francisco’s noise ordinance and construction lighting will be pointed away from homes.

The project contractor, Ranger Pipelines, Inc., has completed construction of the new tunnel shafts under Westborough Boulevard. The SFPUC’s water pipelines will be taken out of service on Saturday, January 10 and the contractor will begin installing the new pipeline under Westborough Boulevard. Permitted construction hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. These construction activities are expected to last through March 2015.
