[ARCHIVED] UPDATE 10/11/17: Correas Street Temporary Closure Postponed


UPDATED October 11, 2017

As part of the Half Moon Bay Underground Utility District (UUD), the overhead utility lines near the new Library are going underground, offering a great improvement to the aesthetics of the neighborhood. This work includes street trenching which will cause periodic traffic delays, and in late October will require the temporary closure of Correas Street.

When the initial work on this project got underway last week, the contractor encountered an unmarked sewer line -  which is a significant issue. It required the work to be postponed while the City makes necessary changes to the designs to reflect the presence of this sewer line. The City is hoping to quickly complete the revised drawings and have the contractor resume work next week. Once that work starts up again, the overall schedule can be revised, including the schedule for when the temporary closure of Correas Street will be taking place. The City apologizes for the delay and any inconvenience around this work. More information will be provided after the work resumes.

  • Date to be determined: The contractor will set up traffic control and there will be periodic, short closures of Correas Street between Church Street and Purissima Street, as the initial work to prepare for utility undergrounding takes place.

  • Date to be determined: Correas Street will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians in order for the utility undergrounding to be completed. The duration of the closure is being determined, but is expected to be six-to-eight weeks. During this closure, cars will still be allowed to enter and exit Cunha's parking lot on Church Street. The City is working with the school on a plan for student drop-off and pick-up that will decrease congestion at Church and Correas Streets.

The City apologizes for the additional noise, disruption, and traffic delays that this activity may cause, and appreciates the patience of neighbors, motorists, and pedestrians. All are urged to use extra caution when driving, biking, or walking in the area.

If you have specific special needs, please feel free to discuss them with either of the following:

Jason Baker,Tennyson Electric, Inc. (UUD issues) (925) 606-1038 ext. 203
George Sanen, Construction Manager, City of HMB (Library Issues) (415) 858-8582
Brain Lee, City of Half Moon Bay, (650) 726-8284

It is best to avoid this area if possible - but when in the area, motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are encouraged to use extra caution. The City apologizes for any additional noise or disruption that this activity may cause - we're working to minimize the impact the construction has on neighboring properties, and the community - we appreciate everyone's patience!
