Main Water Pipe Replacement Project

California Water Service Company (Cal Water) would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during our ongoing construction project. We know you would appreciate an update on the status as well as an approximate construction schedule. Please feel free to contact us at the number below if you have any concerns about the information we are providing.

Due to weather and other construction delays, the project is now targeted for completion in February, 2017.

The status and schedule of construction is as follows:

  • The new water main has been installed, and we have covered the trench with temporary asphalt
  • We have completed the construction work for all of Loyola Dr., Esberg Rd. and Mora Dr.
  • We are still working on Terrace Dr. and Lundy Ln.
  • On Terrace and Lundy, we will be connecting our new main to the existing mains, as well as moving the individual residential water services over to our new main. This work requires shut downs of water service for various lengths of time.
  • We will make every effort to provide a 2 day advanced notice, by leaving a door hanger, prior to any day-long (1 work day) service interruptions.

As stated above, please be aware that the current asphalt is temporary in nature, and will be replaced with permanent paving after the work is complete. After the permanent paving, the project will appear to be done. However, there will be one more item remaining which is “micro-surfacing” the streets. This is to be done in the spring, and will not only seal the asphalt but also give a more uniform look. The reason the sealant is delayed until spring is that it must be done in warm, dry weather to set properly.

We apologize for any inconvenience this work has caused and thank you for your patience.  If you have any questions or we can be of further assistance, please call our Customer Center at (650) 917-0152.

Loyola Corners Community

At the most recent San Antonio Hills Association meeting, the LAND (Los Altans for Neighborly Development) group gave a presentation. They asked local residents to consider joining LAND (Los Altans for Neighborly Development) to be kept informed about local developments.

“Support the businesses at Loyola Corners! Some have been negatively impacted by the two bridge constructions and lack of parking on Fremont Avenue.”

Intersection Issues

The major intersection at the Northbound off ramp from Interstate 280 onto Magdalena has been of concern to several users. If you travel that road and would like to share your thoughts on a better working configuration than currently at this exchange, you may share them with John Thomas of Catrans at (510) 286-4603.

The CHP also reminds us that when stopped at a Stop sign, you must wait until it is safe to enter the roadway. This is especially important at intesections like Country Club, Arbor and Loyola where stop signs are placed a long way back from the road.

Share the Road

Share the Road is more than a phrase. It is a requirement in the narrow San Antonio Hills roads. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists all share the same roads.

Pedestrians should walk near the side of the road, (not in the middle of the lane), facing traffic. During dusk and night hours, they should wear light colored or reflective clothing, and carry a flashlight; moving it from side to side so that they can readily be seen by others.

Bicyclists must follow the rules of the road, and ride with traffic in the same lanes used by motorists. During the night hours, the bicyclists should also wear light colored or reflective clothing. Their bikes should have operating head and tail lights. Some roads have a white stripe which marks the edge of the road. This is not a path or a bike lane unless so designated by signage. It is there to help in foggy conditions and during night hours.

Motorists must be aware of others sharing the road, and adhere to the speed limits as posted. Motorists should expect that radar will be used from time to time as posted and drive defensively and cautiously to avoid incidents and traffic tickets.

Thanks for your cooperation.
