As part of the water metering and water main installation, the City is committed to getting H Street through East Sacramento back to original or better condition.
Beginning the week of May 23rd, City contractors will grind out and resurface the main pipe trench for a smoother and lasting surface on areas of H Street between Alhambra Boulevard and 50th Street that were impacted by construction. Trench restoration is expected to take about one to two days. Road closures and detours will occur on portions of H Street until approximately June 3rd. In addition, signage will be in place to direct traffic. 
Complete aesthetic restoration is projected for 2018. However, street maintenance funds are limited and the exact year is tentative. For more information about projected years of when streets will be resurfaced, visit the City’s street maintenance webpage.

May 24 - Have you been noticing the green cages in East Sacramento and wondering what they are? They protect an important part of the transmission water main system – air release valves. Over time, tiny air bubbles in water collect and eventually form large bubbles that get trapped in high points within the water mains. These green cages allow the air to escape.
