Town Of Moraga

Public Works Updates

2014 Pavement Repair Project.

On May 14, Town Council approved a contract with Ghirardelli Associates to provide construction management and inspection services for the upcoming 27 street segments that will be receiving Rubberized Hot Mix Asphalt (RHMA) or Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) overlays or "mill and fill" treatments of various thicknesses this year. The construction will go out to bid on May 19 and be awarded by Town Council on July 9.

Storm Drain Master Plan

In the upcoming weeks, Town staff and consultants will be out on the streets gathering data about the storm drain collection system including televising a portion of higher risk pipelines to assess their condition. This phase of the project will eventually assist with determining the needs, costs, and priorities to repair damaged pipelines and potentially increase pipeline capacity to reduce flooding.

Street Light Master Plan

On May 14, Town Council approved a contract with W-Trans to provide a comprehensive plan with a proactive approach to determine future needs, costs, and priorities associated with street light improvements and standards. Keep an eye out for public outreach opportunities!

Keeping our Creek Waters Clean

In 1987, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act expanded the NPDES permit program to begin regulating discharges from storm drains owned and operated by municipalities. Each agency, including Moraga, must implement specified activities year-round. The Town must incorporate stormwater pollution into municipal operations; inspect local businesses and construction sites; reduce the quantity of trash and enforce prohibitions against non-stormwater discharges entering creeks or storm drains; perform specified public outreach activities; require new developments to manage runoff pollutants; and monitor water quality, among other activities.

Canyon Bridge Replacement Project

Authorization from Caltrans was received on May 5 to begin preliminary engineering, allowing for expenditures to be reimbursed as part of the grant that the Town received from the Highway Bridge Rehabilitation and Replacement Program. Next week, the Town’s consultant, Nolte Vertical 5, will be surveying the Canyon Road bridge over Moraga Creek and the surrounding project area.
