Soquel Drive Cast Iron Main Replacement Phase IV

Latest Update: May 20, 2022

The project is complete.  Temporary striping repairs will be done by the County public works and resurfacing of the roads will be incorporated into the County’s upcoming Soquel Dr Bufferred Bike Lane Project.

Project Description

The District will be installing 7000 feet of new water main along Soquel Drive from Cabrillo College to State Park Drive. The project will also include some work on Haas Drive and many of the streets connecting to Soquel Dr along this corridor. The project length is expected to be 15 months and will break ground in October 2020.

This project will be replacing the failing cast iron pipe along this corridor and will significantly improve the reliability of the water system in this area. Part of this area has corrosive soils that have eaten away at the existing cast iron pipe over the last 60 years. This compromised pipeline has had several catastrophic failures over the last several years which are dangerous and expensive to repair.

Working hours are from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Northbound lane closures are from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Southbound lane closures from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Night work required by county within 100 feet of State Park Drive.
