UPDATE: Partial closure of East Bayshore Road postponed

Caltrans to stage crane, other pile-driving equipment for San Francisquito Creek Bridge replacement project

Update from the Department of Transportation: The June 25–26 closure of East Bayshore Road for pile-driving work is cancelled due to an equipment change.


A stretch of East Bayshore Road between Pulgas Avenue and Laura Lane will be closed on Saturday and Sunday, June 25 and 26, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., so that construction crews can stage a crane and other pile-driving equipment for the San Francisquito Creek Bridge replacement project, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Though vehicles will not be allowed on the road, pedestrians and bicyclists will be guided by flaggers through the area. The construction activity could bring about increased noise, Caltrans noted in a press release.

After 7 p.m. on both days, one-way traffic control will be in effect. The public will be alerted of the closure by changeable message signs, according to Caltrans.

The $18 million bridge replacement project is expected to be completed in 2017.
