East Palo Alto completes first phase of flood-related repairs along San Francisquito Creek
June 19, 2013, 05:00 AM

Residents of a flood-prone neighborhood in East Palo Alto can rest easier now that the first phase of repairs to the San Francisquito Creek bank have been completed.

The creek overflowed in December 2012 and sent mud and debris onto Woodland Avenue, damaging homes and threatening PG&E infrastructure and a portion of the road, which had to be closed to traffic.

The damaged section of Woodland Avenue has since been resurfaced and reopened, and the exposed slope of the creek bank has been shored up with mesh, rock and installation of a new concrete dike, community development director John Doughty said. “It’s a great start,” Doughty said. “This will hold for some time to come.”

The repair project cost a little more than $165,000, Doughty said, though additional work is needed along the waterway.
