The following information was provided to the Mission Hills BID from the City of San Diego Public Works Department regarding the University Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project:
You are subscribed to receive construction updates on the University Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project. This project will take place in the Mission Hills, Uptown, Hillcrest, University Heights and North Park areas of San Diego, with work occurring in phases at particular locations along the alignment of the project.
HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING:
As a part of the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project to replace the water mains in your community, a water service interruption will take place in the areas listed below on the days and during the hours mentioned. The activity below highlighted in orange was rescheduled from its original date because of inclement weather.
WATER SERVICE WILL BE TEMPORARILY INTERRUPTED ON THE FOLLOWING NIGHT BETWEEN 10 P.M. AND 6 A.M. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2016**
- Washington Street between Albatross Street and First Avenue (on the north side of Washington Street only).
- Alley between Albatross and Front Streets (at Washington Street and north to Lewis Street).
- Alley between Front Street and First Avenue (at Washington Street and north to Lewis Street).
WATER SERVICE WILL BE TEMPORARILY INTERRUPTED ON THE FOLLOWING NIGHT BETWEEN 10 P.M. AND 6 A.M. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2016**
- Fourth Avenue between Washington and Lewis Streets
- Lewis Street between Third and Fourth Avenues
In addition, water service to some residences and businesses will be provided by a two-inch temporary, above-ground pipe (referred to as high-line pipe) which is installed along the curb. This will allow the City to shut down the existing main, so that it can be replaced. The high-line installation is anticipated to start on Sunday night, January 31 at 10 p.m.** at the following location:
- Goldfinch Street between University Avenue and Fort Stockton Drive
Your property/building is tentatively scheduled to be connected to the high-line pipes on Monday night, February 8 at 10 p.m.** This will allow you to have water service during the remaining work and until the water is provided by the new water main. Remaining work includes the installation of service connections.
**Special note: If rain occurs prior to a scheduled water service outage, the work will take place on the next dry day. If there is a change of schedule, you will receive a door hanger about 24 hours in advance with the new schedule.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while work progresses on this project. Every provision will be taken to quickly and efficiently complete the work.

This Capital Improvement Program (CIP) project will replace about four miles of old, deteriorating, cast iron water mains with new Polyvinyl-Chloride (PVC) pipes. PVC pipes offer improved service reliability and a longer service life. Improvements also include new valves, fire hydrants and installation of curb ramps that facilitate access for persons with disabilities. In addition, streets that have been excavated as part of this work will be slurry sealed as phases are completed. Any areas of vegetation or landscaping that are affected will be replaced. Construction of this infrastructure project is expected to last about three years.
