Watch for Detours, Equipment, and Broadway Street Closure as Downtown Retail~Cinema Project Continues to Take Shape

Redwood City, CA - June 2 , 2005 - While the retail-cinema structure continues to make great progress, there remains a great deal of work that will have an impact on Downtown traffic and pedestrians. Here is an overview of the major elements of that impact.

  • To accommodate the bulk of the streetscape work that will enhance the new Downtown retail-cinema project, Broadway will be entirely closed to vehicular traffic between Jefferson and Hamilton starting in July. This closure is expected to last for the duration of the construction, through the end of 2005. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the construction period in order to provide easy access to the businesses in that area.
  • The removal of trees and concrete planters on Broadway between Jefferson and Hamilton will begin within the next two weeks. This removal will make room for the news streetscape improvements that will go in as part of the retail-cinema project.
  • Installation of a new water line and an increased-capacity sewer main underneath Broadway will take place in June – watch for work and street closures on Broadway between Hamilton and Wharf Street (one block past Jefferson).

The City would like to thank drivers, pedestrians, and businesses in the affected area for their patience and understanding, and apologize for any inconvenience that may occur. This work is a necessary part of the new retail-cinema project that will help bring a renaissance to Downtown Redwood City. All scheduling is subject to change, and the City will keep the downtown community informed of new schedule information.
