Walnut Street Lagoon Seawall to be Replaced

Expect some noise, dust and fewer parking spaces during the two-month construction period.

Walnut Street Lagoon Seawall to be Replaced

From a City of Alameda announcement

Between Aug. 8 and Oct. 17, 2012, the City will remove and replace a portion of the lagoon seawall at the south end of Walnut Street. During the construction period, approximately four on-street parking spaces will be unavailable for public use at all times. The construction activities include pile driving (hammering posts into the ground) that will generate dust, vibration, and noise, which will be limited to daytime only. The work is being performed to prevent erosion, protect the lagoon shoreline and improve drainage at the end of Walnut Street.

The new seawall will be a smooth concrete wall with minor decorative features, similar to other publicly owned walls adjacent to the lagoon. A new chain link fence, like the existing fence, will be placed on top of the new wall.

The project is funded by the City's Urban Runoff Clean Water Program.  No General Fund monies will be used.

Questions about the project should be directed to the project engineer, Laurie Kozisek, at (510) 747-7930.
