Lincoln Avenue Cluster

Project details

Beginning Sunday June 14, 2020, EBMUD crews will install a new water pipeline to improve water service in your Walnut Creek neighborhood. We will work on:

  • Lincoln Avenue from Broadway to North Main Street

Scheduled night time work

EBMUD Pipeline Crews will be working in the evening from Sunday, June 14 through Thursday, June 18 and from Sunday, June 21 through Friday, June 26 between the hours of 8:00 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. This work is necessary to complete the water pipeline replacement project on Lincoln Avenue


What to expect 

  • Construction will take place on Lincoln Avenue from N. Main Street to Broadway Avenue and on N. Main Street at the intersection of N. Main Street and Lincoln Avenue. Expect advance warning signs and lane closures during the night work. Please proceed with caution if you are near the construction zone. 
  • Equipment and materials will be temporarily located in your neighborhood during construction.
  • After the new water pipeline is installed, crews will transfer water services, install fire hydrants and make final connections.
  • Once construction is completed, material and equipment will be removed within 1 to 2 weeks. 

Water service interruption 

After service interruption, there may be air in the pipes that may loosen particles in your home plumbing. Close your toilet water supply valves, and then run water from your front hose bib, bathtub and/or cold water faucets for 1-3 minutes. This will dispel any air or loosened particles from your household pipes. If any water quality issues remain after flushing, please call us.


The asphalt paving applied daily is temporary and designed to provide a safe road surface during construction. Final paving will occur after pipeline work is completed. It may take up to 30 days or longer before final paving is complete.
