U.S. Route 101 San Francisquito Creek Bridge Project
Palo Alto/East Palo Alto
Caltrans will begin Stage Four construction on the San Francisquito Creek Bridge Replacement Project at the border of San Mateo County and Santa Clara County on U.S. Route 101 in Palo Alto and East Palo Alto.
Beginning mid-December 2016, East Bayshore Road will temporarily re-open to traffic for the holiday season. One-way traffic control will resume in April 2017 to November 2017. This will allow crews to complete construction of the new bridge.
West Bayshore Road will be completely closed between Woodland Avenue and Channing Road, April 2017. This will be in effect until the end of December 2017. There will be no through access to traffic. Residents will continue to have access to their property. This will allow crews to construct the West Bayshore Road Bridge.
Detours and Changeable Message Signs will be in place to help guide motorists through the construction area.
The scheduled completion date is spring 2018 (weather dependent).
NOTE: Residents may notice increased noise from demolition equipment and mandatory backup alarms while the contractor is working in the construction zone.
