Camino Tassajara set to reopen Dec. 16 after rain delays paving

Closure necessitated by replacement of failing drainage culvert near northern Dublin city limits

The opening of a portion of Tassajara Road in Dublin and Camino Tassajara in unincorporated San Ramon Valley that has been closed since May for road improvements will now be delayed two weeks due to weather.

Dublin officials said the large amount of rainfall received in November limited the contractor's ability to place new asphalt in this section of roadway.

With drier conditions anticipated over the next several days, the multi-day process of paving the road to a finished standard will resume.

The road is now set to re-open on Dec. 16.

The closure was 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 have been unable to use Tassajara Road/Camino Tassajara to travel between Dublin and the San Ramon/Danville area during the work.

I simply don't understand how a city that can make a 4 story residential over retail building appear practically overnight takes 7 months to replace a culvert and build a bridge.

I'm confused. Over the last few weeks I've been hearing about a rain delay of two weeks, however, I remember the December 16 date from many months back; and the December 16 date has been on those orange signs for months. Anyway, looking forward to it reopening, it took way too long!
