Evacuation Exercise On Saturday 12/15 from 7:00 to 8:00 AM

Expect traffic delays on Moraga Way on Saturday, December 15 from 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM during the Moraga Country Club evacuation exercise. There will be a full-scale evacuation exercise using Moraga Way from St. Andrews Drive to Glorietta Blvd. The Moraga-Orinda Fire District, Moraga Police Department, Orinda Police Department, MCC Staff and Lamorinda CERT are coordinating the drill. The exercise is designed to test our ability to manage a large-scale evacuation. It will involve notifying MCC residents using the Contra Costa County Community Warning System and sending two lanes of traffic toward Orinda on Moraga Way from St. Andrews Drive to Glorietta Blvd. Vehicular traffic on Moraga Way from St. Andrews Drive to Glorietta Blvd. will only be allowed to join the evacuation procession by turning toward Orinda. Traffic will not be allowed to drive toward Moraga from any streets or driveways inside the exercise route from approximately 7:00 AM to 8:00 AM. We realize that this may inconvenience some residents and hope you will understand what an incredible learning experience this will be for our first responders and the Community. With the recent fires in our state, we have seen how important a well-practiced evacuation can be. Additional evacuation exercises are being planned for other Lamorinda neighborhoods.
