Upcoming projects of note:
SDG&E Night Work: A contractor working for SDG&E is scheduled to conduct night work on Monday and Tuesday, July 18-19, from about 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. This work includes asphalt repair work, grind and overlay, across all lanes of Third and Fourth streets between J Avenue and Alameda Boulevard. Nearby residents will be notified by the contractor within 72-hours of the start of work. Please follow the posted signage and traffic control devices. 
Second Street Water Pipe Flushing: California American Water planned to flush a water line in Second Street for maintenance purposes early next week. However, the project has been postponed. As part of the work, a large volume of water will be discharged to the gutter. Residents may see water in gutters along Second Street, D Avenue and First Street as a result. This effort may take multiple days to complete. The City will be monitoring the work as well as the quality of the water being discharged to the City’s Storm Drain system.
