Temporary Road Closures, Lane Realignments, & Detours for Massive Concrete Pour at Underground Parking Garage Project Site
Redwood City, CA - June 7 , 2004
- With nearly 6,000 cubic yards of concrete going into the foundation of the new underground public parking garage, concrete trucks will be making over 600 round trips to the site within a single 16-hour period. To accommodate that many truck trips, a temporary road closure/detour plan will be implemented at midnight , Thursday, June 10th and will continue until 4 pm , Friday June 11th.
The City asks for the patience and understanding of motorists and downtown businesses as this huge concrete pour takes place. Motorists are also asked to exercise additional caution, and to be aware of trucks, equipment, and workers in the area. Appropriate signage will be in place directing motorists to the detours, and flyers will be distributed to downtown businesses and residents to help them cope with this temporary inconvenience.
Here is an overview of the necessary changes to traffic patterns during this concrete pour (click here for a spreadsheet version of the road closures description - PDF):
