The Marin Municipal Water District will be closing a portion of Southern Marin Line Fire Road in the Baltimore Canyon Open Space Preserve near Crown Road in Kentfield for slide repair work Sept. 14 through Oct. 29.
For public safety, the fire road will be closed at the worksite weekdays 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The fire road closure also will impact access to and from the entrance on Crown Road to Hoo-Koo-e-Koo Trail, Dawn Falls Trail and H-Line Fire Road. Visit marinwater.org for a map of the construction area.
The work involves construction of a 168-foot-long retaining wall to repair a slide on Southern Marin Line Fire Road triggered by late spring rains. Southern Marin Line Fire Road is the location of a 24” transmission pipeline (the Southern Marin Line) that serves as the main supply of potable water from the Bon Tempe Treatment Plant to southern Marin. The road needs to be stabilized before the next rainy season to prevent additional earth movement that could undermine support for the pipeline, potentially leading to the pipe bending and failing.
Although the road is located on Marin County Open Space land, MMWD owns an easement to maintain the pipeline. The slide repair will restore the roadway to its original width.
The MMWD Board of Directors awarded the contract for this project to Team Ghilotti, Inc. of Petaluma, who submitted the lowest responsible bid of $192,845.00
