Printer-friendly version

To facilitate construction of a new water main necessary to replace aging infrastructure and to improve reliability for residents, the City of Brisbane and Erler & Kalinowski, Inc. (the City’s engineering consultant) will be performing 12 soil borings to investigate ground conditions along the length of the proposed new water main.  The borings will be drilled at the north and south end of Thomas Avenue; Annis Road south of San Bruno Avenue; the intersection of Annis Road and Humboldt Road; the intersection of Humboldt Road and Sierra Point Road; near 301 and 800 Harold Road; the intersection of Kings Road and Beatrice Road; near 350 and 292 Kings Road; near 4 Margaret Avenue, and at the north end of Paul Avenue (see map below) starting on Monday, October 24, 2016. Construction hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Each boring will be completed in approximately one hour.  The work is anticipated to be complete in two days.

Construction activities at each boring location include: Setting up construction work areas, drilling borings of approximately 8 inches in diameter and 10 to 15 feet deep, backfilling the boring with cement, and providing traffic control.  Construction equipment will include a truck-mounted drill rig.

To facilitate construction, one lane of Thomas Avenue, Annis Road, Harold Road, Humboldt Road, Kings Road, and Margaret Avenue in the direct vicinity of the borings may be closed for up to one hour at a time during construction hours.  Cones and signs will be posted, and flaggers will direct traffic when needed.  Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use caution when traveling through the area.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this work.  Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this project, please contact the Public Works Department at 415-508-2130.
