Annual Street Rehab Project Starts August 2018

Public Works is bringing you fresh streets! Be on the lookout for contractor notices 3 days prior to the start of work this August 2018. Approximately one-third of all City streets will be slurry sealed or repaved to improve and maintain pavement quality.

The Construction Notification Flyer was mailed out the week of July 9, 2018. Normal construction impacts may include dust, noise, traffic delays and parking restrictions. Please visit this page for updates. Project notifications will also be available via the City’s Twitter (@EmeryvilleCA) and on the project website at Annual Street Rehab Schedule.


PG&E Natural Gas Pipeline Upgrade Projects

PG&E is upgrading pressure-regulating equipment on the natural gas pipelines in Emeryville as part of a system-wide safety program. Work has already begun and will continue through the end of 2018.

Christie Ave: 9 AM – 3:30 PM
Shellmound Way: 9 AM – 3:30 PM
Powell St: 9 AM – 3:30 PM
Hollis St: 7 AM – 4 PM

UPRR Maintenance Project

Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) will be replacing more than 16,000 railroad ties between the cities of Emeryville and San Pablo. The tie installation project began on April 1st, 2018 with an anticipated completion date of May 23rd, 2018. This project is being done as part of the annual maintenance work across UPRR's network. Due to the commuter schedule in the area, the work can only be performed at night during a curfew from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

Please note that the City does not have any jurisdiction over Union Pacific Railroad and therefore City regulations such as the Noise Ordinance, which governs construction hours, and procedures for obtaining a waiver from the Noise Ordinance do not apply to UPRR projects. Impacts to residents may include bright lights, construction noise, and train horns.

UPRR states the following regarding this project: "Nothing is more important to Union Pacific than the safety of our employees, customers and the communities we serve; therefore, ensuring that our tracks and crossings are safe for trains to traverse through is a priority. We apologize for the inconvenience and noise impacts to local residents. Our engineers will work diligently to complete the project during its scheduled time frame."
