Construction is set to begin on the Tara Hills Full Trash Capture Project starting Thursday, Oct. 6, and continuing through Thursday, Nov. 17, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Drivers should expect delays of up to 10 minutes during construction, which will occur from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The roughly $2 million, state-funded project will install debris separating baffle boxes (DBSS) to capture and prevent debris in the stormwater system from entering waterways. Work will be done at three locations: Tara Hills Drive and Magee Avenue; Tara Hills Drive and Flannery Road, and Shamrock Drive west of Kavanagh Road, according to Contra Costa County Public Works.

The work being done generally consists of excavation, shoring, installing the DBSS systems and pavement restoration.

Lane closures along Tara Hills Drive will be in place during construction activity at Flannery Road and Magee Drive.
