A big project is on the horizon. The East Bay Municipal Utility District will start work in the fall of 2014 on a year-long project to strengthen Chabot Dam to sustain a possible 7.25 magnitude earthquake on the Hayward Fault.
San Leandro Bytes reports that more than 6,000 truckloads of dirt will need to be hauled. The report continues on to say that:
"Although the route of truck traffic has not yet been determined, the trucks could use Estudillo Avenue and the bridge across San Leandro Creek at the end of Estudillo Avenue . . . This means that San Leandro's Chabot Park will be closed for an extended period of time and will mean summer day camps will have to be moved. The West Shore Trail between Chabot Park and Lake Chabot will also be closed during construction."
