San Ramon reschedules road closures

Resurfacing dates revised for Bollinger Canyon, Norris Canyon roads

City officials have announced that recently advertised road construction on Bollinger Canyon and Norris Canyon roads was rescheduled, and the projects for both locations are now set for the first week of August.

Bollinger Canyon Road

Bollinger Canyon Road from Crow Canyon Road to San Ramon Valley Boulevard will be resurfaced resulting in partial closure during construction on Aug. 5 and 6, city officials said.

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

Another parking option is to use driveways or garages, but drivers can 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.

Residents can expect noise and heavy equipment during construction. Officials also advise taking extra precautions with children and pets after the new material, called slurry seal, is applied. The road will remain sticky for up to six hours and can permanently stain driveways, clothing and carpet.

The roadwork is set for completion on Aug. 6 but could continue past that date at certain intersections depending on weather conditions and work progress.

Arrangements can be made to accommodate special needs by calling 973-2675.

Norris Canyon Road

Norris Canyon Road from Alcosta Boulevard to Twin Creeks Drive will also be resurfaced with slurry seal resulting in partial street closure from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday (Aug. 2) and Sunday (Aug. 3).

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.
