San Ramon schedules street closures

Resurfacing to take place on Bollinger Canyon, Norris Canyon roads

The city of San Ramon has scheduled two street closures during the next week for the resurfacing of Bollinger Canyon and Norris Canyon roads.

Residents should expect heavy equipment, noise and possible delays, according to city officials.

Bollinger Canyon Road

During Tuesday and Wednesday (July 22-23), Bollinger Canyon Road from Crow Canyon Road to San Ramon Valley Boulevard will be resurfaced, resulting in the street being closed to parking and driving from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (unless otherwise posted).

Residents who need to drive during the hours of closure should park on nearby streets or other locations not designated for closure by "No Parking" signs, city officials said. Cars remaining on the street during posted hours will be towed.

Bollinger Canyon Road will remain open on other work days. Residents have two options for parking:

* Park in driveway or garage: Expect possible 10-15 minute delays or adverse driving surfaces. If crews encounter difficulties in front of a particular driveway, the delay can reach one to two hours. Most people experience little or no inconvenience when choosing this option, city officials said.

* Park on nearby street not designated for construction: Due to many unforeseen conflicts that occur routinely, the roadwork is not guaranteed to occur on the scheduled date, city officials said. Arrangements can be made to accommodate special needs by calling 973-2675.

The resurfacing project is set to be finished by August.

Norris Canyon Road

During July 26-27, Norris Canyon Road from Alcosta Boulevard to Twin Creeks Drive will be resurfaced, which requires a temporary closure to traffic from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The contractor will set up traffic control signs on Alcosta Boulevard, Annabel Lane, Bishop Drive, Camino Ramon, Canyon Village Circle, Cartagena Lane, San Ramon Valley Boulevard and Twin Creeks Drive to direct traffic to and from parking lots and through construction zones, according to city officials.
