Traffic

A few construction projects are expected to have notable traffic impacts in the coming weeks. These impacts are expected on Marsh Road at the exit to Constitution Road as well as along Middlefield Road between Willow Road and Ringwood Avenue during nighttime hours.

Night work on Middlefield Road requiring lane closures will be occurring starting Monday, February 11, and will continue for approximately six weeks. PG&E is replacing gas lines along Middlefield Road between Willow Road and Ringwood Avenue that requires lane closures for the work zone and equipment.

The Marsh Road exit to Constitution Road and Independence Road will likely be closed for realignment starting Monday, February 18, weather permitting. Access to Constitution Road and Independence Road will be from Chrysler and access to all properties will remain open during this time. The exit is scheduled to reopen in late summer/early fall 2019 with a different configuration.
