Lane Closures Planned on Willow Pass Rd. Near Galindo in Concord for the Next Seven Weeks

Motorists are being advised to expect delays on a major downtown Concord thoroughfare starting today as crews work to upgrade a sewer line in the area.

The roadwork will take place on Willow Pass Road between Mira Vista Terrace and Galindo Street from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday starting today, with a target completion date of Aug. 29, according to Concord Police.

Willow Pass Road will be open but traffic will likely be slow in the area due to lane closures, according to police.

During the seven-week project, crews will replace aging sewer lines, many of which date back to the 1940s and 1950s.

The project is being paid for via the city’s Sewer Enterprise Fund.

Good to see the sewer lines fixed before they fail. Now if only we can get to that point on our roads.

For all his faults, Mayor Daley in Chicago knew how to get things done. Road work went on 24/7. The projects were completed fast and on time.

Closing a major street for 7 weeks should be a criminal offence. Does round the clock work cost more? Yes. But not as much as you would thing because the project would be finished in 11 days or less. Of course the city council would have to stand up to the unions and might not get as big a contribution to the “retirement fund”.
