Golden State Water – Water Main Replacement Project on Indian Hill Boulevard between Colby Circle and 210 Freeway overpass

On Tuesday, July 7, Golden State Water will begin preliminary construction work associated with their water main replacement project taking place on Indian Hill Boulevard, from Colby Circle to the 210 Freeway overpass. This work will consist of installation of a new 12-inch water main, fire hydrants, and residential service laterals.

This work will be implemented in several phases in order to reduce the impact on traffic flow. The first phase of work will require northbound traffic to merge to one lane on Indian Hill Boulevard just north of Via La Selva. During a short portion of this phase, the intersection of Via Zurita Street will be affected while the contractor installs the water line, crossing the intersection. This intersection will only be affected during that time and will be open to normal conditions at all other times during this project. Golden State Water will work with the residents to accommodate local access.

As the construction progresses, more updates will be provided with information on the phases and required traffic control. This work is expected to be completed by September 2020.
