A major pipeline project located on upper Lincoln Way adjacent to Interstate 80, will continue construction until June 30 by the Placer County Water Agency. The 36-inch pipeline is the main water supply for the Auburn Treatment Plant on Ferguson Road. The new line replaces an old pipeline that is leaking and deteriorating. The buried pipeline will run about 2,500 feet within Lincoln Way from the area of the Sizzler restaurant below Bowman Road, to Foresthill Road and then to the water treatment plant. Traffic is reduced to one lane while work continues both day and night shifts. Information about the project is available on the PCWA website, -Ben Furtado, Journal photo editor
