FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Temporary Closure of Fruitvale Park and Ride Lots
Interstate 580 / Fruitvale Avenue in Oakland
March 2017 through August 2017

Alameda County, Calif. – Caltrans is conducting work to upgrade curb ramps and sidewalks for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance improvements and repave the park and ride lots located at Fruitvale Avenue undercrossing. The lots will be closed, alternating closures between the two lots. One lot, during construction will remain open, but will impact the total number of parking spaces available during construction.

Sidewalk and ADA ramp work will necessitate temporary equipment staging in one of two lanes along Fruitvale Avenue, reducing the roadway to one lane in this area of construction on a short-term basis. Signage will provide 72-hour notice prior to any lane restrictions. Work will be conducted in phases at individual locations. Work will be conducted according to the schedule below:

• Work impacting the park and ride lot will typically take place (in one lot at a time) from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM weekdays (Monday through Friday).
• Curb ramp improvements will typically take place from 7:00 AM until 4:00 PM weekdays (Monday through Friday).
• There may be night closures that will take place from 10:00 PM until 7:00 AM weekdays (Monday through Friday).
• There will also be construction noise due to heavy equipment operations during times of construction.

The project work begins Wednesday March 15, 2017 and is anticipated to be completed in August 2017. All work is weather dependent.

SR-37 Marin County Reopened- Following Flood Repairs and Improvements

State of California • Department of Transportation
NEWS RELEASE
__________________________________________________________
Date: February 22, 2017
District: 4 - Oakland
Contact: Bob Haus
Phone: (510) 286-5576

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

State Route 37-Marin County
Reopened
Following Flood Repairs and Improvements

Marin County – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced today it will reopen State Highway 37 in Marin County on February 23, 2017 by 5 a.m for the morning commute.

The 1,500-foot segment of the 4 lane freeway, located between State Route 101 and Atherton Avenue, has been either partially or fully closed due to the flooding caused by storms, heavy rain and king tides several times since the first week of January. Caltrans initiated an emergency contract that had a contractor work around the clock since February 14, 2017.

Construction crews have successfully regraded the freeway asphalt pavement to a higher profile, replaced the drainage system with larger drain pipes, installed a lateral support sheet pile wall, placed temporary pavement striping, installed median guardrails and a shoulder concrete barrier on the eastbound highway. “These measures will provide greater climate resiliency on this portion of highway 37,” said Caltrans District Director Bijan Sartipi.

During the next few months construction crews will continue median and shoulder work during off peak hours with lane closures to complete remaining drainage work, headwalls, pipe tidal gates, guardrail, bridge sealing, electrical work, pavement striping, and median or shoulder grading work as weather conditions improve.

“These improvements will not make the road flood proof, but they will ensure future flooding episodes are fewer in number and shorter in duration on this part of highway 37,” said Caltrans District Director Bijan Sartipi. “We thank everyone for their patience while we complete this project.”
