Pershing Avenue Sewer Trunk Line Rehabilitation Project

The City of Stockton will be replacing about 0.5 mile of existing sewer trunk line along Pershing Avenue between Venetian Drive and Swain Road.  As part of the improvements, traffic control and temporary sewer bypass pumping will be required. 

Pershing Sewer Project Map

Construction is anticipated to begin August 2020 and expected to be completed by the end of July 2021. 

Project Description

The project includes replacing 794-feet of existing 18-inch and 1,560-feet of existing 30-inch sewer trunk line.  The methods being used to repair the sewer line require no digging of the sewer trunk line.  A small segment will require trenching in the street and digging for a few days.

Work Hours

Work will take place between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays. Due to the size and length of the pipe, boilers and pumps will be required and will generate some engine noise; this phase of the project will continue round-the-clock, 24-hours a day, to provide power and help speed up installation of the new pipe liner.


Travel Tips

  • Pershing Avenue will be open to traffic during construction with restrictions.
  • All businesses will remain open during construction.
  • Lane closures will be required.
  • Watch for signs notifying drivers of changing conditions and workers in the area.
  • Allow extra time for traffic delays while work is occurring.
  • Please use caution and reduce speed.


Project Funding

This project is funded through the Wastewater Utility Fund.
