The highly anticipated, $14 million project organized by Glendale’s Public Works Department began construction mid-November. Changeable message signs and “No Parking” signs can be seen on San Fernando Road warning drivers of construction and predicted traffic delays. Although there is one lane open in each direction for through traffic on San Fernando Road, we encourage you to take the suggested detour routes to avoid major traffic delays.
The Chevy Chase Sewer Diversion & Public Works Yard Recycled Water Main is one of our larger scaled projects that will be taking place over the span of two years from November 2015-March 2017. A portion of this project includes installing a new sewer pipe starting on Colorado Boulevard and continuing through the Public Works Yard and ending in West Chevy Chase Drive.
Longterm benefits include:
- The new sewer pipe will divert the wastewater flow from the Hyperion treatment plant in the City of Los Angeles to the joint Los Angeles/Glendale Wastewater Reclamation Plant (LAGWRP), saving the City approximately $1 million annually in treatment fees.
- The second portion of the project includes installing a recycled water main beginning at Los Angeles Street continuing through the Public Works Yard to West Chevy Chase Drive, which is anticipated to save Glendale 2.5M gallons of potable water per year.
