On Thursday, Dec. 10, the number of trucks going to the Rinconada plant will increase as construction shifts towards building foundations for flocculation and sedimentation basins, one of the Reliability Project’s largest concrete pour jobs.
Sixty-five concrete ready mix trucks will make 65 trips in each of the three days planned for the work. The jump in traffic will occur over a three-week period between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays with no weekend work. Trucks will follow the approved route to the plant via Pollard Road to More Avenue, entering through possibly both entrances to the plant on More and Granada Way. The trucks will hold between nine and 11 cubic yards of wet concrete.
The water district will have several more concrete pours over the course of the five year project. The upcoming run, though considered large, is smaller in scale to the largest run to date, when about 114 trucks carried excavated soil during the early stages of the work.
