Transport of fill dirt will delay traffic on County Road 102

By Lily Holmes

Traffic on County Road 102 may be delayed by up to 10 minutes beginning Monday and continuing through Aug. 25. Delays are expected between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. during this period, and the northbound right lane will be closed at the intersection of County Roads 24 and 102 in Woodland.

The delays will be caused by trucks hauling soil from the construction site of the joint Woodland-Davis surface water treatment plant in Woodland to The Cannery site in Davis.

According to the city of Davis, contractor CH2M Hill will haul about 80,000 cubic yards of soil, or about 10,000 truckloads, to The Cannery site at J Street and Covell Boulevard. CH2M Hill estimates that, at most, a truck will leave the surface water treatment plant for The Cannery every two to three minutes, with a total of 20 to 30 trucks traveling on this route at one time.

The northbound right lane will be closed at the intersection of County Roads 24 and 102 “specifically to accommodate the large trucks turning into the treatment plant,” said Kim Floyd, public outreach manager for the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency. Lane closures are not expected at other locations.

Excess dirt from the surface water plant will be used as fill dirt at The Cannery project site, which is being prepped for construction of 547 units of housing and some offices and commercial sites. The project, 10 years in the making, was approved earlier last fall by the Davis City Council, and ground was broken on May 3.

It is being built on the site of the former Hunt-Wesson tomato cannery at J Street and Covell Boulevard. A large swath of the property must be leveled off with the fill dirt before construction of the homes can begin. That work is expected to start next spring.

“It’s a nice trade that the cities are able to work out, but there will be some traffic delays,” Floyd said.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes or allow extra time when traveling on County Road 102. For more information or to voice concerns, call the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency hotline at 530-402-7702 or visit www.wdcwa.com.
