[ARCHIVED] EBMUD Road Closure for Pipeline Replacement in Kensington

EBMUD Road Closure for Shakespeare Road Cluster Pipeline Replacement Project in Kensington

October 27, 2021, Kensington, CA – Contra Costa County will be issuing a Road Closure permit to East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) to fully close a portion of Lenox Road, Avon Road, Richardson Road, Stratford Road, Willow Lane, Coventry Road and Ocean View Avenue, in Kensington. Traffic will be detoured via neighboring streets.

The purpose of this road closure is for EBMUD to install 3755' of 8" IPVC, 2045' of 6" IPVC and 25' of 2" copper. Work will begin on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 and last through June 2022, barring unforeseen circumstances. Work will occur between 7:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, weather permitting. The roadway will be reopened at the end of each workday. 

Residents can expect pavement saw cutting, trenching, staging of equipment and materials, temporary road closures to through traffic and loss of some street parking, in phases. Some dust and noise can also be expected during the hours of construction. A portion of Lenox Road, Avon Road, Richardson Road, Stratford Road, Willow Lane, Coventry Road and Ocean View Avenue will be closed to through traffic (allowing residential and emergency access only). There will be traffic control throughout the work area so drivers can expect delays. “No Parking” signs will be posted 72 hours in advance of work. Final paving will follow several months after pipeline installation.
