A contractor will be cold planning the highway and applying a hot mix asphalt (HMA) overlay. The work will be done from 7 p.m. to noon June 6-8, 13-14 and 15-16. Unexpected delays may prolong the schedule.

Caltrans will be working with Vanguard Construction of Livermore to grind and repave the roadway. Motorists should expect one-way reversing traffic control with delays of up to 20 minutes. Nearby residents can expect loud construction and commercial truck back-up beeping noises during nighttime to early morning hours.

This $7.3 million project will improve overall safety for all users on this section of State Route 16 from Orleans Street to County Road 21A. Enhancements include crosswalks, curb bulb outs, upgraded curb ramps, improved lighting, green bicycle lane treatments, pavement rehab, parking, and drainage improvements.
