A contractor putting in fiber optic cable for a client in the El Portal Plaza broke a water main and caused extensive road damage to El Portal. Crews are assessing the damage and will begin repairing the water line and the road.
'We want to make sure the road is safe and the water main is properly working before we open the road up for traffic,' said Interim City Engineer Mike Beltran. 'We apologize for the inconvenience, but want to assure people that we will keep them informed of our progress.'
A driveway on El Portal remains open for business customers, along with regular access on G Street. Access to the north portion of El Portal Plaza is open only via Sundance Drive. The main part of El Portal Plaza is available via G Street.
