Camino Tassajara closure begins near Dublin city limits

Thru-traffic access unavailable between Dublin/San Ramon Valley until December

A portion of Tassajara Road in Dublin and Camino Tassajara in the San Ramon Valley is now closed due to a culvert replacement project and associated road improvements.

The project is expected to take until December for completion.

The closure is necessitated by the replacement of a failing drainage culvert that is located just north of the intersection of Tassajara Road and Fallon Road, near the northern Dublin city limits.

Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians will be unable to use Tassajara Road/Camino Tassajara to travel between Dublin and the San Ramon/Danville area for the duration of the work, and those travelers will need to use alternate routes.

Alternative routes include both Windemere Parkway and Bollinger Canyon Road.

While through traffic along the roadway will not be permitted, local residents will be able to access their properties from the north.

Emergency responders and other service providers have been notified and will be prepared to provide services during the road closure, officials said.

What did you expect when you bought a home in San Ramon?

When I saw that the road was going to be closed for 7 months, I assumed it was some major widening/straightening project, of a fairly long stretch of road (such as the entire Alameda County section). For a culvert repair and "associated road improvements", a seven month closure seems excessive. Or are the "associated road improvements" actually the main project??

I have to go near emerald glen park in Dublin from Blackhawk every day. What used to take 15 mins now takes 40 mins. How can they close the road for 7 months !!!! That's likely to accommodate the housing construction work that's going on there under the pretext for fixing a culvert that's supposed to take 7 months.

I agree with Lee. JRM - what motivates your comment? What is wrong with San Ramon? Give the job to Trump and he will get it done I just a few weeks ( New York skating rink)!!

Anyone who drives out to Windemere can see that with so many homes and so few ways to get in and out, traffic & congestion was bound to be a problem. Cutting off an artery will only make it worse.
