Coast Range Tunnel Shutdown Begins

The SFPUC has begun the long-planned temorary closure of the Coast Range Tunnel to perform maintenance and inspections on the tunnel and construct crucial pipeline connections to the tunnel in the Sunol Valley while it has been drained of water.

SFPUC customers will begin receiving water from reservoirs in the Bay Area exclusively until mid to late February.

Here is a view of the ventilation system constructed for this shutdown to keep air flowing through the tunnel.
