Caltrans Begins Night-Time Road Work on El Camino Real
Redwood City, CA - July 14 , 2006 - Starting Monday night, July 17th and lasting until the end of September, Caltrans will be performing major roadwork on both directions of El Camino Real in Redwood City, between Edgewood Road and Berkshire Street. At just over two miles, this is approximately the entire length of El Camino Real within Redwood City.
The City has been informed that the work will take place only between the hours of 9:00 pm and 7:00 am, in order to reduce the impact to motorists. This project consists of grinding the roadway, installing detector loops, overlaying/resurfacing the street, raising the existing utility covers to grade, and re-striping the roadway.
The contractor is allowed to work up to seven nights a week, and during this work there will be lane closures, lights, heavy equipment, and workers in the roadway. Motorists are advised to use extra caution when driving on El Camino Real in Redwood City during the construction hours. There will be little if any impact to motorists using El Camino during the day.
El Camino Real is a state route, and Caltrans is the state agency with responsibility for the roadway’s maintenance. Anyone with questions, concerns, or complaints regarding this project can contact Caltrans at 510-579-0604. The Caltrans website is www.dot.ca.gov.
