Town of Sunol Fire Suppression System Project

Construction Update

Railroad Crossings:
On Monday, October 6, 2014 crews will start the jack and bore work to cross under the Alameda County Rail Road at the intersection of Main Street, Kilkare Road, and West Foothill Road. If work proceeds as planned, the contractor will begin the jack and bore work underneath the Union Pacific Railroad on Main Street the week of October 20, 2014. This means construction at both railroad crossings will occur at the same time.

What to Expect:
* Crews will insert a steel casing from the driving pit at the intersection of West Foothill and Kilkare Road to a receiving pit (next to the Depot Parking lot).

* Kilkare Road will be reduced to one-lane traffic during daytime at the railroad crossing. We appreciate your patience with the expected traffic delays in the area.

* Access through the area will be allowed at all times, but please prepare for delays.

* Crews might need to hand drill under the railroads to remove rocks. The equipment will generate some noise.

Bridge Crossings:
Next week, crews will complete all work related to the bridge crossings at Sinbad Creek on Bond Street as well as on Foothill Road.

Hydrant Installation:
The majority of the hydrants will have been installed at their marked locations by the end of October. There is one hydrant on Main Street that will not be installed until after the jack and bore work is completed. The hydrants should be available for use in November.
