Truck hauling route for trench soils removal project

EBMUD crews will begin removing accumulated soils from our Briones storage site off of Bear Creek Road.

EBMUD continually generates trench soils as a result of construction projects and pipeline repairs, and uses storage sites like Briones on an ongoing basis to temporarily store the soil until their ultimate reuse or disposal. The Briones site has reached capacity and soils must be moved to allow for continued use.

Schedule and hauling route 

Trucks will haul soil starting Tuesday, April 24 until October 2018. Typical work hours may begin as early as 6 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Trucks will travel westbound on Bear Creek Road toward Camino Pablo to access Highway 24 and will return on this same route. 

EBMUD is communicating with local cycling groups as well as Wagner Ranch Elementary School regarding temporary increases in truck traffic.

Please see below for maps of our truck hauling route and Briones trail reroute.

Briones Trails   

A portion of Oursan Trail within Briones Reservoir will be re-routed during this time.
