Brookside Ave Pipeline Project Delayed, Tentative Start Date is Now January 2

The city delayed the project because some residents were concerned about the work being done over the holidays, a city spokesman said.

A City of Redlands water pipeline replacement project that was slated to begin Monday has been delayed until after Christmas and New Years, and a tentative start date of Jan. 2 has been set.

The project on Brookside Avenue between San Mateo Street and Roma Avenue was announced last week and it was scheduled to begin Monday Dec. 3, a city spokesman said.

"The City is delaying to accommodate residents who were concerned about the work being done over the holidays," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said Tuesday in an email.

When work on the project begins, eastbound traffic lanes on Brookside Avenue in this area will be closed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. during the four-week project, Baker said.

During the closures on Brookside, traffic will be detoured to Olive Avenue, Baker said.

The City Council awarded the contract for construction of the Brookside Avenue Pipeline Replacement Project to Christiansen Pipeline, Inc., on Oct. 2, Baker said.

The project cost, estimated at $289,660, is expected to be covered by "water funding sources," Baker said.

"No General Fund dollars will be used to construct this project," Baker said.
