ALERT: Expect Major Delays on N. Main St. in Walnut Creek

January 29, 2015 16:01 pm · 9 comments

Crews are working on an emergency water line repair on North Main St. between Sunnyvale Ave. and Geary Rd. in Walnut Creek.

Police say they expect the water shutoff to last for the next several hours.

In order to replace the water main, the traffic will be reduced to one lane in the southbound direction on North Main St. until later tonight.

Police anticipate this will cause heavy congestion in the area, possibly backing traffic onto southbound I-680, and the Treat Blvd. off-ramp.

Heavy congestion? That’s every day in the ‘creek. You can’t take a trip down the block without it being a long, drawn out ordeal.

Any news on the traffic situation going over the hill on Ygnacio Valley Rd into Concord/Clayton?

Thanks for the heads up, but I already got stuck in it. At least now I know why.

That area is always a can-o-worms.

Now, it’s going to get ugly.

i was just thinking that today about nut creek (#1) and how nice it used to be when a drive through town didn’t take thirty minutes to cross five milies! Much rather take 24 into Lafayette or Orinda than have to drive downtown.

That intersection sucks grape nuts. CalTrans, Walnut Creek, and the County need to get put their heads together to assemble one functional brain to make it, including North Main/Treat, more efficient. That area is worthy of gas tax dollars.

Totally a Guv’mint problem.
The Free Market would have solved this in an hour.
