We’re still getting questions about this, so we thought we’d repost.

Motorists are being advised to expect delays on a major downtown Concord thoroughfare 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, 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.

That’s gonna suck. Concord should change the hours from 9 AM to 3 PM to avoid peak commute times.

But alas it is the City of Concord who have their heads up their…

DO IT AT NIGHT!!!

Never understood why highway workers can work at night, but in city work can’t.

It cost more to have it done at night. This is the best time of year to get it done since school is out and not much chance of rain.

Why should they have to work at night? I have a family and sure as hell wouldn’t want those hours. #3 and #4, why don’t you work at night? That way you can avoid construction work AND traffic.

Your city doesn’t have the state’s budget to be paying them Caltrans wages. Get over it, they’re fixing your roads with your tax money.
