Wilson Street Pipeline Replacement Project Underway

Posted: Thursday, August 26, 2021

Mesa Water proactively invests in its infrastructure to ensure a reliable water supply now and for future generations. We recently began construction on the Wilson Street Pipeline Replacement Project, a new underground steel pipeline on Wilson Street from the Newport Boulevard intersection to the Harbor Boulevard intersection in Costa Mesa. It will replace the existing 70-year-old pipeline. Construction will be completed by Spring 2022. Construction will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and will be completed by Spring 2022. Following the completion of the Wilson Street Pipeline Replacement Project, the City of Costa Mesa will resurface Wilson Street.

Traffic lanes will be open in both directions and/or detoured during the partial lane closure near the areas where the new pipeline is being installed. Other potential impacts include temporary bus stop closures/relocation, and minimal dust and noise. There will be periods of night work at the intersections of Wilson Street and Harbor Boulevard and Wilson Street and Fairview Road from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday.

Additionally, some customers may experience short-term interruption to water service. Every effort will be made to notify customers in advance of any potential interruptions.
