Miner Road Sinkhole Construction is Underway

Miner Road Construction Activity

Over the weekend of April 22nd-23rd, Bay Cities completed the trenching and installed the temporary creek diversion. A large sandbag dam was placed to re-route the creek flow into the two 48 inch diameter pipes to outlet back into the creek downstream of the sinkhole site. The creek bed through the sinkhole site no longer has any flowing water, but it is generally muddy and filled with silt. The work was completed after extended shifts by their crews. The existing utilities (gas, water, and sewer) lines were transferred to a new steel beam support system to remain in service above the sinkhole area. The new culvert will be constructed under the existing utilities which will remain in service throughout the duration of sinkhole repair.

We appreciate everyone's patience with the noise generated from the construction, and the minor traffic delays from the trucks hauling dirt from the worksite to the Sports Field which is being used as a temporary stockpile location. The majority of the trucks hauling material along Manzanita Road will be completed by the end of this week.
