Big Dish set to close for a month beginning July 13

Walking the DishThe Big Dish, the popular walking area frequented by Menlo Park residents, will be closed for a variety of construction and maintenance for a month. A potable water line will be constructed in the vicinity of the Alpine Gate in Menlo Park, the road between the Alpine Gate and the Dish structure will be repaved, and a protective fencing will be installed in sensitive California tiger salamander areas.

To minimize the time period that public access to the Dish area is restricted, all construction activities in the Dish area have been scheduled simultaneously during a one-month period, beginning July 13 with a planned re-opening day on August 16.
