Bike Path Closed for WRF Pipeline Construction

The bike path between Atascadero Road and Main Street will be closed starting Monday, Aug. 16, for several months of pipeline construction as part of the City of Morro Bay’s Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) Pipelines. The WRF Program is the largest-ever City infrastructure program, and will meet state water and wastewater regulations, protect the environment, and contribute a safe and reliable water source for Morro Bay’s residents and businesses.

 

What To Expect:     For safety, the bike path must be closed to the public for pipeline construction. The posted detour for cyclists and pedestrians is Atascadero Road and Main Street (map is available here). Please use extra caution when using the detour, as cyclists and vehicles will be sharing the road. Please plan for traffic delays and allow extra time when using the detour, including travel to and from Morro Bay High School. 

 

Construction will be completed in segments along the bike path, including tunneling and trenching activities. The WRF Pipelines include two wastewater pipelines, one pipeline for the water treatment process discharge, and one purified water pipeline.

 

When:                        Construction is scheduled on weekdays, but for safety, the bike path will be closed continuously for several months starting Monday, Aug. 16.

 

The City is committed to clear communication and providing up-to-date information about construction activities. Properties along the construction area will receive printed notices before work begins near their address, and construction notices will be regularly posted on morrobaywrf.com. Please contact wrfinfo@morrobayca.gov or 877-MORROBAYH2O with questions about the City’s WRF Program, and a team member will get back to you within one business day. Thank you for your patience.
