Del Dios Striping (Caution: Wet Paint!)
DPW Striping Crew will be working on Del Dios Hwy starting Tuesday, Dec. 10, through Friday, Dec 13 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.. Work will include refreshing all striping and roadway legends starting at Clauden Road (the Escondido city limit) and going west to the intersection of El Montevideo and Del Dios. Watch for message boards and other signage starting Dec 2. Plan your commute during those four days to include some minor traffic delays, but we will make every effort to minimize impact to motorists. Please also watch out for our crews and equipment, and do not drive across the wet paint.
But it's more than just roads. DPW crews are always at work building and maintaining our County infrastructure, ensuring our wastewater and stormwater systems are fully operational, our inactive landfills are monitored and maintained, our environment is protected through effective recycling programs, and of course, working to keep our County roadways safe and passable.
Storm Ready: We are Certified!
It's the rainy season and dark clouds and rain are in the forecast. DPW crews have been working all year to prepare - cleaning storm channels and drains, clearing and replacing under-the-road culverts, all to keep our roads safe and passable.
And once again this year the County of San Diego is designated as a StormReady County, thanks to the efforts of DPW’s Flood Control Section. This certification by the National Weather Service demonstrates that San Diego County is prepared for storm-related disasters. The program also helps save on insurance premiums across the unincorporated county.
Flood Control staff have redesigned our storm operations center (The Weather Center) to more efficiently conduct storm operations, expanded our webcam program at low water crossings subject to frequent flooding, developed a near real-time flood forecast model for the San Luis Rey River Watershed, designed and helped conduct a comprehensive regional flood disaster exercise, and expanded the ALERT flood warning system. All to help us better prepare and keep us informed during severe weather.
Check for road closure notices, snow plowing operations, and other safety advisories on the DPW Facebook and Twitter pages, and during severe weather on the DPW Emergency Page. And above all - be safe this winter season. Don't cross flooded roadways where you cannot see the pavement, and watch for DPW crews plowing the mountain roadways during and immediately after the storms.
