New Water Tunnel into Fremont

The SF Public Utilities Commission approved the new Irvington Tunnel today. The seismically strong tunnel will bring fresh water in the Bay Area right next to the seismically challenged Irvington Tunnel.

The tunnel is named for Irvington, but when the construction starts in April, the impacts will be in the Mission district, along Mission Boulevard near Mission High to be more percise.

  1. Matt,

    Do you have more information or place where more information would be posted on this?

    Your post does not sound very happy, to put it mildly.

  2. Mama Bear, It’s too early to know when the work will be, but it will involve removing the Central Median, to allow for big trucks hauling big stuff to get through. Those big trucks from time to time will slow traffic, but they will be lots of times when there won’t be any trucks at all.
