SummerHill Homes Starts Work in Moraga

June 3, 2015 | Lamorinda Weekley

Over the past two weeks up to 12 large trucks were spotted lined up on Moraga Way, preparing to turn onto Camino Ricardo to reach the SummerHill Homes construction site up the street. This marked the beginning of the grading and construction of the Camino Ricardo construction project scheduled to continue through the fall of 2017. Over the course of 10 working days, trucks took 3,000 cubic yards a day from Moraga to Point Richmond where there is another project that needs more fill soil. The trucks transported 12 cubic yards per load, making 250 round trips per day to move the dirt.

The hauling ended during the week of May 25, ahead of schedule. "Later this summer, we will still have a few more days of off-haul but the majority of that operation has been completed now," said [Katia] Kamanger, Summerhill executive vice president. She added that she expects the foundations of the first model homes to be built this August and the road that will serve the 26 new homes on the 14-acre site off Camino Ricardo to be constructed this year, before the rain.

This month SummerHill also hopes to start the reconstruction of Rheem Boulevard, a project associated with the Rancho Laguna 2 development. Due to the excavation and repair of Rheem, the section of the arterial between Moraga Road and St. Mary's Road will be closed for four to six months.
