Roadway Rehabilitation Work Completed Monday, July 19 at 9:45 AM

Contra Costa County - Caltrans has completed its second and final weekend of full highway closures on Northbound State Route 242 (SR-242) in Concord.

Northbound SR-242 was fully reopened on Monday July 19 at 9:45 AM. Caltrans replaced 3,500 linear feet of concrete paving in both lanes #2 and #3 of northbound State Route (SR-242) in Concord.

The work was partially paid for with funds from SB-1.

Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.

SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1.
