TRAFFIC ALERT – Water Main Installation On J Street Begins Monday, June 6. As part of the Water Infrastructure Improvements Program, City contractors will soon be installing a new 8 inch water main pipeline on J street in the existing center turn lane between 33rd and 40th Streets. The installation will require use of heavy excavating equipment and haul trucks.
Work will begin on Monday, June 6, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and last approximately seven working days. Two-way vehicle and bike traffic will be maintained on J Street at a reduced speed. Temporary traffic control and flaggers will be used to guide motorists and pedestrians through the construction zone. After the water main installation is complete, additional follow up work will occur through July 15, 2016. Water service connections to businesses and residents will also be installed. This work may result in intermittent shifts of traffic lanes along J Street and may require closure of one block of side streets that intersect J Street. Once all work is complete and the new water main is tested, trench restoration paving, center lane island reconstruction and re-striping will occur. For more information and to receive updates, visit the water meter project site. Email us at or call the project information line at 916/808-5870.

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.
