Sewer Project To Impact Del Paso Road

Construction Crews Set Up Traffic Controls in Natomas

The outside westbound lane of Del Paso Road, between Gateway Park Boulevard and Park Place South Drive, will be closed from Wednesday, March 25 at 8 a.m. until Thursday, March 26 at 6 p.m. All eastbound lanes will remain open, as will the inside westbound lane.

During heavy commute times, alternate routes may be more efficient. While the lane will be closed for the duration of the times listed above, normal construction hours are between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday. Certain exceptions will apply.

The closure is scheduled to accommodate Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District’s (SRCSD’s) sewer pipe construction project in the Natomas area.

UNWI 1 & 2 is part of the larger Upper Northwest Interceptor (UNWI) system. The UNWI system has been in design since the early 1990s and is broken into nine sections (UNWI 1-9) for easier design and construction. The entire UNWI travels approximately 20 miles from Citrus Heights, through North Highlands and Rio Linda to Natomas.

When complete, the sewer pipeline will carry wastewater flows from northeast Sacramento County to the New Natomas Pump Station near the intersection of Interstates 5 and 80, from which flows will be sent to the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant in Elk Grove via the existing Lower Northwest Interceptor.

The system is expected to be ready for service in 2010.
