According to Jeff Ballou, the Chief Utilities System Operator for the City of Pleasanton, before it could be completed, the repair needed a specialty part that arrived late on Friday.
Ballou wrote, via email:
"We are scheduled to be on site this morning to continue with the repairs. We have kept the road closed over the steel plates on Valley Ave due a significant rattling problem with the plates. Unfortunately, the Valley Ave roadway is not flat and we are not able to shim the plates sufficiently to prevent them from rattling every time a vehicle passes over them. This resulted in excessive noise that is keeping everyone in the neighborhood awake all night long if we allow cars to drive over the plates."
Ballou says they are trying to get the repair "completed as soon as possible to the roadway will be back to normal operation."
Several other areas around town have experienced water main breaks in the past few months including Stoneridge Mall Road, Hopyard Road and Foothill Road.
