2018 Street Rehabilitation Project

Full Depth Reclamation (FDR), a proven and innovative method to reduce pavement costs, recycles existing pavement structure by pulverizing it in place and mixing in cement stabilizers to create a new pavement base. The Town of Moraga and the City of Orinda are jointly participating in the 2018 FDR project, which includes reconstructing portions of three streets: 1) Crossbrook Drive (Greenfield Drive to the end); 2) Tharp Avenue (Camino Pablo to the end); and 3) Ascot Drive (Ascot Court to 2084 Ascot Drive). A final pavement overlay will be added to the streets utilizing the Town's rubberized asphalt grant funds. For more information click here

Updated August 1, 2018

The Bay Cities Paving and Grading, Inc. is scheduled to begin potholing to locate utilities within the road to determine wether utility adjustments or relocations are needed before the FDR work begins. Additionally, there is a short segment of underground storm drain pipe to repair in August and September. The FDR and asphalt pavement overlay work will be scheduled after the potholing, and storm drain repair work phase.

Potholes

The Public Works Department has unveiled a new way to bring potholes to their attention. Residents can now send a text or e-mail to potholes@moraga.ca.us, which will allow staff to better track and manage pothole repair requests. E-mail and text messages also allow for pictures, which make locating and prioritizing the repair much more efficient. To best assist staff with locating and repairing potholes, please include your name along with the address of the pothole, as well as any landmarks which will be helpful in locating it.

The text / e-mail system will help the Maintenance crews to more efficiently maintain Moraga’s streets and spend its limited resources wisely.

Emergency Services

The Town of Moraga is a limited service municipality.  We have no major equipment and a limited number of maintenance workers on staff.  Most of our construction and repair projects are completed on a contractual basis.  To assist you in resolving your specific problem, we have developed an Emergency Services List that lists local suppliers and contractors that may be able to help you.

Clean Water Program

In the Town of Moraga, storm drains flow directly to local creeks, San Francisco Bay, San Leandro Reservoir, and the delta with no treatment. We are dedicated to maintaining a healthy environment in our beautiful creeks, rivers, the Delta and the Bay. Learn more about our Clean Water Program here. To report a spill or illegal dumping, please call The Moraga Police Department at (925) 284-5010.

Storm Drain Master Plan

Town Council adopted the Storm Drain Master Plan (SDMP), originally created as a proactive approach to determine the needs, costs, and priorities associated with the Town’s 27 miles of storm drain collector system and 35 creek culverts. This information is critical for the Town to properly program: future repair; replacement; and consideration of increased capacity of the Town’s storm drains. The SDMP has identified $26 million of unfunded improvements. To view the Town's Storm Drain Master Plan, please click here.

Encroachment Permits

An Encroachment Permit is generally required for any construction within the public right-of-way, including: repair of sidewalks, connection of a new underground gas or water service or widening of a driveway. Public streets should not be used for the temporary storage of construction or landscaping materials, such as stacks of lumber, piles of sand or landscape boulders. An encroachment permit is also required for the temporary use of a public street, such as placement and pickup of a trash collection dumpster. A deposit may be required to cover the cost of repair of damaged paving as a result of the encroachment.
