The City of Sacramento, Department of Utilities’ contractor, Steve P. Rados, is installing a new sewer line. Construction will begin at the intersection of 3rd St. & T St., then move to 5th St. & T St. It will then travel north on 3rd St. until H St., near the Sacramento Valley Station.


During construction, large 42-inch and 48-inch sewer pipelines (depending on location) will be installed using an open cut trench. Additional work includes installation of new sewer manholes, modifications to existing drain inlets, and new combined sewer service connections.


You will always have access to your home/business during construction. However, street parking will be restricted, and traffic will be re-routed to avoid construction areas. Please plan for traffic delays.

When will construction occur?

Construction is scheduled to occur between summer 2019 and winter 2020. See map above for the most updated information.

What are the construction hours?

Construction hours vary by area and are designed to minimize traffic, business, and resident impacts. Work may occur during week days, weekends or at night. See map above for the most updated information.

What should we expect during construction?

All large-scale construction projects are impactful to those living, traveling, and working in the area. During this project, large sections of roads will be opened up to install and access pipes, resulting in traffic closures, diversions, and reduced street parking. Additionally, there will be increased noise and odor. Crews will work to minimize all impacts.
