Due to the winter storms that have been passing through the Arnold area, T&S Construction’s work schedule has been limited on the Reach 3A Project. Please see the construction schedule below for the planned construction schedule between December 22 and January 5.

December 22: Construction crews will be performing work along Blagen Road near the entryway to the Sierra Meadows Apartments. Community residents should expect minor traffic delays on Blagen Road during construction activities.

December 23 and 26: T&S Construction will not be working these days in observance of the holidays.

December 27: Crews will be working on connecting a pressure reducing valve near the entry to Sierra Meadows Apartments to the newly installed water transmission line. Residents should expect minor traffic delays while this work is taking place.

December 28: Water will be shut off to Hazel Fischer Elementary School to allow construction crews to connect the school to the new water transmission line. Students will be on Christmas break, so impacts are expected to be minimal. The Sierra Nevada Logging Museum will also be without water while this work is taking place. CCWD has notified the school, logging museum and Ebbetts Pass Fire Protection District.

January 3-5: If weather allows, crews will be working near Snowshoe Brewery to install the final section of 12-inch line in that area. Residents should expect minor traffic delays when construction is taking place.

Construction generally begins by 7 a.m. and crews head home by 3:30 p.m.

So far, T&S has replaced 15,000 feet of pipeline and another 4,000 feet remain – the project is about 80 percent finished. The remaining portions of pipeline that need to be replaced are along Pine Drive, Oak Court, Oak Circle, Sequoia Street, Fir Street, Dunbar (from Fir to Highway 4) and from Chevron to Henry Street along Blagen Road. While crews will continue working through the winter, substantial completion of the project will most likely be in spring 2017.
