Timeline LV

6/3 Project Complete:

  • Final acceptance of the improvements on Linda Vista Culvert Project took place on June 2.
  • All traffic control devices will be removed.
  • The additional culvert will help mitigate the anticipated post-wildfire flooding from the Museum Fire by maximizing the channels capacity.

5/21 Final Project Update:

  • The control valve project is now substantially complete. We have successfully replaced and relocated the control valve underground beside the street where is it much safer for staff to access.
  • We are finished with road closures, but please expect some lane shifts for the next week or so while the stormwater culvert project is wrapping up.

  • Stormwater channel repairs to be completed over the next two weeks
  • Potable Water System Pressure Regulating Valve installed and functioning as of Wednesday, April 22. 
  • Stormwater upgrades to this section of channel designed to address concerns from last year’s Museum Fire and potential increased stormwater flows

4/22 Update:

  • GOOD NEWS! The water pressure reduction time period has been reduced. Residents now have full water pressure resumed as of today, Wednesday, April 22.  The water system valve replacement has been completed prior to the April 24 estimate.  
  • More GOOD NEWS! There is an opportunity to complete the stormwater piping and street paving a week ahead of schedule. This will require an additional week of road closure on Linda Vista Drive, through Friday, May 1.

Construction is scheduled for March 30th to May 15th, 2020.


To minimize road restrictions, two Water Services projects will be conducted simultaneously on Linda Vista Drive. Water Services will be replacing a control valve between North Paradise Road and North Adrianne Way, while also upgrading stormwater infrastructure within Spruce Avenue Wash.

Road Closures

The projects will cause intermittent lane restrictions or delays on Linda Vista Drive between North Paradise Road and North Adrianne Way during the construction period. This section of Linda Vista Drive will be closed from April 13th to 24th.  Those affected by these road restrictions should access Linda Vista Drive via North Fourth Street (see map).

Reduced Water Pressure

Local residents north of Linda Vista Drive, between North Paradise Road and Grindelwald Way should expect reduced water pressure for five consecutive days during the road closure period, April 13-24. If your home is located in an area that will experience reduced water pressure, you will be notified in advance. A map of the reduced water pressure boundary is posted below.
