Current Town Projects
Below is a list of current Town construction projects in Hillsborough.
Proposed Eucalyptus Avenue Pathway and Tree Renewal Project:
The Town of Hillsborough is proposing to initiate a tree vegetation renewal program on Eucalyptus Avenue, between the 500 and 700 blocks of Eucalyptus Avenue. The proposed plan includes removing up to 15 aged, non-native Eucalyptus trees; installation of 50 plus local, native trees; landscaped, vegetated shoulders; the addition of approximately 1,400 feet of pedestrian pathways; and curb and gutter installation for improved storm water conveyance.
Marlborough Tanks Improvements Project:
This project consists of performing appurtenance upgrades and recoating two 225,000 gallon steel water tanks. The recoating and appurtenance upgrades to tank #2 were completed as originally planned. The roof of tank #1 was found to contain significantly more corrosion and metal loss than originally believed, and it will be replaced as part of a future project that is currently under design. It is anticipated that work to tank #1 will resume in the winter of 2020 and be completed in spring 2021.
Cherry Creek Pump Station:
This Project consists of replacing the existing pump station which is located in the easement adjacent to the SFPUC turn-out. This project also includes upgrades to the electrical service so the pumps can run simultaneously. This project is fairly complex due to environmental constraints and negotiations with the SFPUC on land acquisition. Design began FY 16/17 and construction is anticipated to begin in summer of 2019.
Water Main Replacement Program:
These are annual projects to repair/reconstruct portions of the distribution system to address known hydraulic and water quality deficiencies.
