Safety is Priority
Safety is our number one priority when moving any type of heavy equipment into or out of the project worksite.
Park users and travelers are encouraged to move safely around the park. Please watch for detours and signage and follow direction from flaggers. The public is encouraged not follow construction vehicles or buses as they may enter restricted zones. All construction-related traffic impacts are subject to change.
The Washington Park Reservoir Improvements Project entails constructing a new 12.4-million gallon, seismically reinforced, below-ground reservoir in the same footprint of existing Reservoir 3 (upper) with a reflecting pool/water feature on top. The existing Reservoir 4 (lower) will be disconnected from the public drinking water system and a lowland wildlife habitat area, bioswale, and reflecting pool will be constructed in the basin.
