Skyway Drive Sewer Upgrade Project Starts February 5th


Motorists and bicyclists may experience delays and are encouraged to use alternative routes during road work for the next six weeks along a one-mile section of Skyway Drive near the Santa Maria Public Airport.


The County’s Laguna County Sanitation District will be starting the Skyway Drive Sewer Upgrade Project on Monday, February 5th and continue work through mid-March.  The work will begin at the intersection of State Route 135 (Broadway) and Skyway Drive and move west as the job progresses.


This will require eastbound Skyway Drive to be reduced to one travel lane between Airpark Drive and State Route 135.  A portion of the bike path that runs along the west side of Skyway Drive will be temporarily out of service; bicyclists will be directed to walk their bikes around the construction zone while work is being performed.


The work includes trench excavation to install a new 15-inch-diameter sewer line, new sewer manholes, backfill, re-paving of the trench, and then re-establishment of traffic striping.  The sanitation district has contracted with Toro Enterprises to perform the $300,000 project.  Approximately 900 linear feet of new sewer line and four new manholes will be constructed.


City staff recommends that drivers obey all temporary construction signs and reduce driving speeds in construction areas.  The driving public may experience delays during construction.  It is recommended to use alternate routes whenever possible to avoid delays and minimize the inconveniences to motorists and residents.


Questions may be directed to the City of Santa Maria’s Department of Public Works, Engineering Division at (805) 925-0951 extension 2225.
