The Sacramento Area Sewer District’s Mission Trunk Sewer Project is currently underway. Upcoming construction activities on Mission Avenue between Santa Lucia Way and Thor Way include:

Project Update – Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) Installation on Mission Avenue between Santa Lucia Way and Thor Way (posted December 28, 2020)

What to Expect: In early January prior to the CIPP lining, crews will clean the sewer pipe. This should take several days and crews will work from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Then, in mid-January, SASD’s contractors will erect a tent over the laydown area that spans about 150 feet over the insertion manhole at Mission Avenue and Ulysses Drive. This area will be used to prepare and insert the CIPP liner through the manhole and into the sewer pipe. Once the CIPP lining begins, crews must work 24/7 to complete the process, and some weekend work may be necessary. Crews will work for a short time at each manhole along Mission Avenue between Ulysses Drive and Arden Way to cut the lining once it has been fully installed. The CIPP work will last about two weeks.

During the CIPP work, northbound Mission Avenue will be closed between Thor Way and Santa Lucia Way and detour routes will be clearly marked. Additionally, the Mission Avenue entrance to Starr King K-8 will be closed to traffic and pedestrians. Southbound traffic will remain open on Mission Avenue during this process. At the receiving manhole near the intersection of Mission Avenue and Arden Way, a TVI (televised inspection) truck and generator will be in place 24/7 to monitor the lining installation. During this time, traffic controls and lane shifts on Arden will be in place. 

We will take all reasonable measures to minimize construction impacts—including noise, odor, dust, and temporary traffic, parking, and property access impacts. Please look for cones, flaggers, and construction signs, and exercise caution at all times around construction activities. Additionally, we will work closely with affected property owners before and during this work.

Project Update – Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) Installation on Mission Avenue between Laurelwood Way and Cottage Way (posted Dec. 8, 2020)

What to Expect: Beginning in early December and lasting about two weeks, SASD’s contractors will erect a tent over the laydown area that spans about 150 feet over the insertion manhole near the intersection of Mission Avenue and Laurelwood Way. This area will be used to prepare and insert the CIPP liner through the manhole and into the sewer pipe. Once the CIPP lining begins, crews must work 24/7 to complete the process, and some weekend work will be necessary. During the CIPP work, northbound Mission Avenue will be closed between Cottage Way and Laurelwood Way and detour routes will be clearly marked. Southbound traffic will remain open on Mission Avenue during this process.

We will take all reasonable measures to minimize construction impacts—including noise, odor, dust, and temporary traffic, parking, and property access impacts. Please look for cones, flaggers, and construction signs, and exercise caution at all times around construction activities.

Project Update - Bypass Installation & Parking Restrictions (Posted Nov. 5)

SASD is installing the Phase 3 temporary sewer bypass system (see map). Crews are working now to place the bypass pipes, which will be above ground along the middle of Mission Avenue and underground at most intersections, allowing for normal vehicle turns (exceptions include Nelroy Way, Hardcastle Lane, the south end of Nottingham Circle, and Santa Lucia Way).

In order to keep both directions of traffic open along the majority of Mission Avenue, street parking will be temporarily prohibited on both sides of the street between El Camino Avenue and Arden Way. This restriction will be in place until Phase 3 is completed, which is expected by February 2021.

We will take all reasonable measures to minimize construction impacts—including noise, odor, dust, and temporary traffic and property access impacts. Please look for traffic detours, flaggers, and construction signs, and exercise caution at all times around construction activities.

Project Update – Manhole and Bypass Installation (posted Sept. 15)

Manhole Installation—starting late October and continuing for 4 weeks:

What to Expect: A new manhole will be installed (see map above) and contractors will be using heavy equipment (e.g., excavator, crane, drill rig) to excavate and complete construction. Work will occur from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and some weekend work may be necessary.

Temporary Sewer Bypass System—early November to January 2021

What to Expect: Once the manhole is installed, crews will then set up the bypass system (see photo and map) to ensure continued sewer service during construction. The bypass system consists of several large pumps, generators, and high-density pipes. It will begin near the southwest corner of the El Camino Plaza Shopping Center, and from there, the bypass pipes will travel south on Mission Avenue to the ending point on Arden Way. Please note, the bypass system must operate 24/7 and will be monitored at all times. Street parking will be temporarily prohibited along the bypass and work area on Mission Avenue.

Northbound Mission Ave. Closure—Early November to January 2021

What to Expect: A portion of northbound Mission Avenue between the intersections of Melvin Drive and El Camino Avenue will be closed to through-traffic. During this time, detour routes will be clearly marked and southbound traffic on Mission Avenue will remain open.  

We will take all reasonable measures to minimize construction impacts—including noise, odor, dust, and temporary traffic, parking, and property access impacts. Please look for detour routes, cones, flaggers, and construction signs, and exercise caution at all times around construction activities. Additionally, we will work closely with affected property owners before and during this work.
