Starting today, Elmira Ln., which runs between Buskirk Ave. & Hookston Rd. in Pleasant Hill will be closed to traffic in the southbound direction and a day or two later it will be closed in the northbound direction for approximately three months.

This road closure duration may change depending on weather, field conditions and work conflicts, according to the City of Pleasant Hill.

Vehicles on Buskirk Ave. will be routed through single lane of two-way traffic through the newly constructed Buskirk Ave. (old S-curve) around the perimeter of the shopping center.

One new traffic signal will be operational at Buskirk Ave./Clarie Dr. and two stop intersections will complete the detour along Buskirk Ave.; one at the south shopping center entrance and a second at Hookston Rd. (both of these are currently in place).

The most inconvenience will be for motorists heading eastbound and westbound along Hookston Rd. to or from Walnut Creek.

Detour signs will be in place to route traffic around the Elmira Ln. road closure.

That intersection has been a continuous monkey humping a football configuration for months.

JOKE. What a waste of fuel and a bunch unnecessary extra pollution from all of the vehicles that SIT through that mess.
Here’s a HINT: DO THE WORK AT NIGHT!!! Spend the money and it will be completed in 3 Weeks instead of 3 Months.

“The most inconvenience will be for motorists heading eastbound and westbound along Hookston Rd. to or from Walnut Creek.” um no….the most inconvenience is for those that live on Hookston!!

I’m sure the people whose homes back up to the Project would love it to be done at night (note sarcasm).

Try being creative and take another route until the work is complete. That’ll save you both fuel and whining time.

I’m not whining :-) just stating the facts – we will be the one inconvenienced – and trust me I will be taking anothe route.
