Due to the installation of new recycled water pipes, the City of Escondido advises motorists that Hickory Street between Washington Avenue & Valley Parkway will be closed during construction.  A full closure of the street will be in effect Thursday, February 18, 2016 through Friday, February 26, 2016.  Detour signs will be posted. All work to be performed between (8:00AM to 4:00PM). No vehicles will be able to access either side of Hickory Street via the Escondido Creek Canal bridge, including emergency vehicles.


Residents and businesses will have driveway access at all times along Hickory St. (between Washington Ave. and Valley Parkway). However, gaining access to those points during the full road closure will be limited to either using Washington Ave. or Valley Parkway; no through traffic (across the Escondido Creek Canal bridge) will be allowed.
