Motorists are advised to avoid the area of El Norte Parkway and Valley Parkway while Escondido City crews are still working to repair a water main break that occurred there on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. El Norte Parkway and Valley Parkway will remain reduced to one lane in each direction until repairs are completed which likely will be mid-day Thursday, September 4, 2014.


The Escondido Fire Department has unlocked the fire gates at Hidden Trails to help relieve traffic congestion for residents living there. They will be closed again once repairs are completed.
