Pajaro Levee Repair Work Begins - Be Mindful of Closures


The Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Watsonville kindly ask for the support of Watsonville residents during vital levee repair. Please obey all posted signs and do not pass construction barriers.

Do Not Pass - Construction Barriers Protect Public Safety and Ensure Project Efficiency

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' $6.4 million project will repair 17 sites along the Salsipuedes Creek and Pajaro River levee systems, in an area bordered by Highway 152, Murphy's Crossing and Highway 1. A number of places along the channel have experienced land sliding due to the heavy rains that struck the region in early 2017. Crews are currently excavating the loose soil, and filling the holes with large rocks. These vital repairs are on an important schedule, aiming for completion prior to the first rains of the fall and winter season. Crews hope to complete repairs in October - November of 2018, and the City is requesting help from Watsonville residents!

While enjoying local creek and river pathways, please obey all posted signs and do not pass any construction barriers. Construction barriers are intended to communicate that an area of the levee is temporarily closed. Any time a resident passes a construction barrier, all repair activity must cease for the safety of all involved. Ceasing repair-work then creates an added burden on crews, with more work to do and less time to complete it in order to stay on schedule. Please be mindful of these efforts and spread the word to any friends and family members who regularly utilize these pathways.

The City of Watsonville and the Army Corps of Engineers are grateful for the assistance and understanding of the Watsonville community.
