Black Mountain Road Pipelines Project
Around the clock work planned for Presidents' Day weekend

San Diego, CA... The City of San Diego Water Department has scheduled construction at the intersection of Carroll Canyon Road and Black Mountain Road to begin Friday, February 14, at
7 p.m. and continue around the clock until Wednesday, February 19, at 6 a.m. This work for the Black Mountain Road Pipelines Project will connect the new reclaimed water pipeline to the existing pipeline at this location. Continuous work during the holiday weekend has been scheduled to minimize the duration of the reclaimed water shutdown necessary to perform this work.

Construction work will require the following traffic variations:
One lane in each direction on the southbound side of Black Mountain Road at the intersection of Black Mountain Road and Carroll Canyon Road will be open to north and southbound traffic. Both northbound lanes will be closed at the intersection.

Carroll Canyon Road westbound at the intersection of Black Mountain Road will be closed. A detour on westbound Carroll Canyon Road will begin at Maya Linda Road heading south and north to rejoin Black Mountain Road.

Please plan to use alternate routes to avoid delays during this short period of work. The City of San Diego Water Department recognizes this is an inconvenience, and appreciates your patience as we work on the Black Mountain Road pipelines.

More than 44,000 feet of pipeline installation has been completed (out of a total of 50,000) in parts of Scripps Ranch, Mira Mesa and Rancho Peñasquitos since April 2002. When fully complete, a new 5.5-mile drinking water pipeline and a 3.8-mile recycled water pipeline will provide enhanced water system reliability and increased water capacity to the region.

Archer Western Contractors and the City of San Diego Water Department appreciate the continued patience of the community during this important project. A project information line is available to address questions and concerns from the community about the project. The phone number is 858-646-9890. Calls will be returned within one business day.

The Black Mountain Road Pipelines Project is part of the City of San Diego Water Department's citywide Capital Improvements Program. Information on this and other projects is available online at www.sandiego.gov. Click on "Departments" and then "Water."
