Flood Zone Construction Details
In September 2020, construction started on the North Shoreview Flood Improvement Project. Some of the work includes improvements to the Coyote Point and Poplar Avenue Pump Stations, and will prompt the temporary detour of the Bay Trail through the North Shoreview Neighborhood.
The full of scope of work includes raising a 1,300-foot levee segment located between the San Mateo and Burlingame border off Airport Boulevard and adjacent to the Peninsula Humane Society. The work also includes updating electrical controls, correcting structural deficiencies, installing backup power generation, increasing pumping capacity at the Coyote Point and Poplar Avenue Pump Stations, and installing trash capture devices.
Construction will include sheet piling work that could be disruptive to residents closest to the Poplar Avenue Pump Station. We will make every effort to minimize the construction noise.
On Monday, May 4, 2020, the San Mateo City Council approved an agreement for $24 million for construction services with Anderson Pacific Engineering Construction.
