construction notice - LAMMERS Road in Tracy

Ongoing Recycled Water Project:

Traffic will be flagged in both directions from Byron Road to South of Kimball High School June 10-July 25, 2019

Tracy, Calif. - Between June 10 and July 25, 2019, construction is planned for the installation of piping for recycled water on Lammers Road between Byron Road and south of Kimball High School in Tracy. Flaggers will be facilitating the flow of traffic in both directions on this segment of road while construction is underway. The work will start on Lammers Road, between Byron and Fabian Road, and then move south toward the intersection of Eleventh Street and Lammers Road. This phase of the project was scheduled to coincide with summer break to minimize delays and impacts to the school traffic.

Construction for this project is being completed in multiple phases, with work planned on a street segment-by-segment basis. This is being done to avoid cumulative delays, longer detours and minimize inconvenience to our community. Reader boards are being placed onsite prior to the start of construction to notify drivers who frequent the area of the upcoming changes. Additionally, construction notices/updates are being issued on a timely basis as this project progresses until expected completion: early 2020.

The City of Tracy Recycled Water Master Plan outlines construction of recycled water infrastructure throughout the City, with major transmission lines running from the Wastewater Treatment Plant to Lammers Road, south of Eleventh Street, via Grant Line and Byron Roads. The recycled water will serve the irrigation needs of street medians, right-of-way landscaping, City parks and Tracy sports fields (including Legacy Fields, Plasencia Fields and the Tracy Sports Complex). The recycled water will also serve the irrigation needs of onsite landscaping in commercial and industrial facilities in the Tracy community. In the future, recycled water may also attract major economic development projects and serve the needs of new developments within the City's General Plan area. This project improves Tracy's water reliability and sustainability of water resources.

What to Expect

During this construction, public safety is the top priority. To minimize delays, flaggers will be facilitating the flow of traffic in both directions on this segment of Lammers Road. Access to residences and properties will be maintained at all times. Local residents and the traveling public should anticipate extra delays in the area.

We apologize for the traffic impacts this work may cause and appreciate your patience.
