State Route 238/Mission Blvd. Roadway Rehabilitation Project
Weekend Closures Rescheduled for South of Stevenson Blvd.
The weekend closure of two lanes on State Route 238/Mission Boulevard between Stevenson Boulevard and Las Palmas Avenue that was scheduled to begin Friday night, May 13 has been rescheduled due to forecast inclement weather.
On the weekend beginning Friday, May 20 the Caltrans contractor plans to work at the railroad undercrossing between Stevenson Boulevard and Las Palmas Avenue. From 8 p.m. Friday, May 20, until 6 a.m. Monday, May 23, two lanes will be closed on the northbound side of SR 238. Two-way traffic will be in place on the southbound side.
Between Stevenson Boulevard and Las Palmas Avenue, one lane will remain open for southbound SR 238. One lane from northbound SR 238 will be detoured to the southbound (west) side of the highway. This closure is necessary due to the limited space and to allow crews a safe area to work. Motorists should expect delays of 15 to 20 minutes during this closure.
To avoid this construction, follow Walnut Avenue to Paseo Padre Parkway, to Driscoll Road, and back to Mission Blvd., or the opposite direction, depending on direction of travel.
A second closure is planned but has not yet been scheduled for the two southbound lanes between Stevenson Boulevard and Las Palmas Avenue. For this work, two-way traffic will be in place on the northbound side of the highway.
Roadway base repair will continue between Stevenson Boulevard and Tamarack Drive, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Caltrans will switch to the new traffic signals at Nursery Avenue on Tuesday, May 17. During the switch, there will be stop signs at the intersection of Nursery Avenue and Mission Boulevard. Motorists should expect delays during this work.
Crews will be working throughout the project at other locations, including between Blanche Street in Hayward and Tamarack Drive in Union City. Please be alert for lane closures and construction workers.
Paving is planned to begin in mid to late May.
