Potholing Activities on the Street

As part of the Federal government’s Coronavirus Guidance for America, transportation infrastructure is considered an “Essential Critical Infrastructure.” Additionally, transit capital projects are not subject to the State of California’s Stay at Home order, therefore Metro construction projects continue to progress.


Metro contractors will pothole to examine underground infrastructure along the western half of Commercial St. near Center St. and Metro’s Division 20 rail yard. Please note there will be intermittent noise, excavation, and limited sawing of street pavement. The street surface will be restored after potholing is complete.
