For Curb Ramp Improvements In San Leandro August 20 – November 13
San Leandro – Caltrans has scheduled to temporarily close some sidewalks and driveways on East 14th Street (State Route 185) in San Leandro, Alameda County. The closures will take place from August 20 through November 13 to accommodate work bringing curb ramps and sidewalks into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The work will take place in two different areas: On northbound and southbound East 14th Street from Blossom Way to 136th Avenue, and on northbound East 14th Street from 150th to 152nd Avenue. The work will be performed between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The new curb ramps will enable people using wheelchairs and others with disabilities related to mobility to more easily negotiate curbs in this area. The work will involve replacing some sidewalks, curbs and driveways.
Some sidewalks will be closed to accommodate the work. Signage will be in place to guide pedestrians to detours. Businesses whose driveways are affected will be directly notified by Caltrans.
Every effort will be made to keep noise and disruption to a minimum, but residents and businesses should expect some noise from construction. Also, parking will be restricted in the work areas from time to time. Signage will be in place to inform motorists of restricted parking.
Caltrans thanks residents and businesses for their patience as we work to improve the state’s sidewalks, highways, bridges and tunnels.
