Starting today, Eastern Municipal Water District will be shutting down the southbound lane of the Murrieta Road bridge over Salt Creek to install a new water pipeline that will run down Murrieta Road from Salt Creek to La Piedra Road. Cars will still be able to travel in both directions, but traffic may be impacted. The southbound lane will be reopened next week when EMWD transitions to the northbound side of the street. This northbound lane closure will last a few months as they do work in the bridge.
Traffic control and detour signage will be set up to guide motorists.
EMWD and the City thank residents for your patience as the infrastructure necessary to provide the community with reliable and quality water service is constructed.
