Traffic cones

UPDATE (2/6/20)

Excavation work began earlier this week at Oak Park Boulevard and El Camino Real. CalPortland began filling the void this week as well. City Public Works staff continue to evaluate the other storm water drainage issues with other involved agencies and are working on developing the most effective strategy to repair storm water conveyance in this area.  Safety is the main priority and the City will re-open the lane closure on Oak Park Boulevard when it is safe to do so.


UPDATE (1/22/20)

Work continues on repairs to the storm drain system on Oak Park Boulevard at El Camino Real. Last night, at a Special meeting, the City Council adopted a Resolution finding that an emergency exists within the City and authorized an Agreement with CalPortland to complete the work needed. Based on this action, the contractor has initiated acquiring the appropriate equipment and personnel and it is anticipated that the section of repairs needed at the intersection of Oak Park Boulevard and El Camino Real will begin Monday, January 27, 2020. Work is expected to be completed within the next two weeks.


Emergency repairs to the storm drain system along Oak Park Boulevard and El Camino Real are underway. For public safety, a semi-permanent lane closure has been established to direct traffic away from the area.  

During the rain event at the end of December 2019, Public Works crews responded to flooding on El Camino Real east of Oak Park Boulevard. Investigations revealed the flooding was caused by storm drain system failures along Oak Park Boulevard and El Camino Real. These failures have caused substantial soil and debris deposits in the storm drain pipes and box culvert, and have created a large void surrounding a manhole on Oak Park Boulevard at El Camino Real. On January 14, 2020, the Council established an emergency repair project for the storm drain system on Oak Park Boulevard at El Camino Real.
