Following the July 4th weekend, Ranger Pipelines, Inc. will begin replacement of the first segment of Crystal Springs Pipeline No. 2 (CSPL2) on Palm Avenue and Elm Court in South San Francisco. Once work is completed on these streets, crews will shift the work zone north to Park Way and Spruce Avenue (anticipated in early August). All work in South San Francisco is expected to be complete early this fall.
This work will require excavation and trenching within the street to expose and replace the pipe.
Your water service will not be interrupted. The contractor will abide by the city's noise ordinance.
South San Francisco work areas include parts of:
Traffic, Parking & Driveway Access
In order for this work to be completed quickly and safely, traffic control measures and detours will be in place. Residents should anticipate minor traffic delays. Detour signs and flaggers will help to direct and reroute traffic.
At the end of the work day, the work areas will be covered by steel plates and swept each day. Please remember to drive slowly through our construction area. For safety reasons, children should never play near the construction areas.
Overnight parking will not be permitted on the streets near our work areas. Please look for the no parking signs for details about acceptable parking hours.
For those homes located next to the work areas, the contractor will make accommodations to allow access in and out of your driveway.
Should you have concerns or questions about parking, traffic or driveway access, please contact us via email: email@example.com.

Ranger Pipelines, Inc. will begin the next segment of pipeline replacement for the Crystal Springs Pipeline No. 2 (CSPL2) along El Camino Real. To prepare for pipeline installation, excavation of the road and installation of the water pipeline will begin in late June.
In order for the contractor to access the pipeline, the contractor is expected to open segments of the road and build "access pits" so that the contractor can get to the pipeline.
This initial work will occur at:
Work Area #8: On El Camino Real between Trousdale Dr. & Murchinson Dr.
Work Area #9: On El Camino Real between Murchinson Dr. & Millbrae Ave.
What to Expect?
For businesses with driveways adjacent to our work areas, the contractor will close driveways along El Camino Real to patrons during construction hours. Alternate entry and exit routes on side streets are available. Traffic control measures will be in place to accommodate traffic along El Camino Real. The contractor will also abide by the local noise ordinance.
To limit congestion along El Camino Real, the "sliplining" technique will be performed. "Sliplining" requires two access pits at each end of the proposed replacement area. The pits and the surrounding work areas are approximately 300 feet long and may require 1-2 lane closures on El Camino Real. Once in place, these access pits can remain for 3-6 months, depending on the weather and installation conditions.

As of June 1, Ranger Pipelines, Inc. is ready to install the first pipe segments of Crystal Springs Pipeline No. 2 (CSPL2) along El Camino Real.
Pipeline installation will begin in the coming weeks with excavation of two access pits along El Camino Real- one near Adeline Dr. and another near Dufferin Ave. The work will occur in the southbound lane closest to the sidewalk.
Once the pits are in place, installation equipment will be mobilized, and then pipe segments will begin to arrive.
What To Expect?
For residents who live along El Camino Real, the current work sites are not expected to impact any driveway access to residences or businesses. However, if any driveway access blockage is anticipated, notices will be distributed at least 24 hours prior to the start of work.
Traffic control measures will be in place during work hours to direct traffic along El Camino Real, and, if needed, to assist those who live near the work areas.
The pipeline access pits and the surrounding work areas are approximately 300 feet long and require at least one lane closure on El Camino Real.
Once in place, these access pits can remain for 3-6 months, depending on the weather and installation conditions. Pits will be covered by metal plates at the end of each work day.
The contractors will also abide by local noise ordinance.
