Weekend Overnight Closure Planned for Caldecott Tunnel Bore, Part of Hwy.24

March 1, 2014 · 4 comments

The third bore of the Caldecott Tunnel and part of westbound state Highway 24 near the tunnel in Oakland will close for several hours early Sunday morning to enable the removal of an old roadway sign, according to Caltrans.

From 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday, Caltrans will close left lanes for nearly a mile on westbound Highway 24 near the Caldecott Tunnel in Orinda. The tunnel’s third bore and westbound Highway 24 in Oakland from the tunnel to the northbound state Highway 13 connector will also be closed, according to Caltrans.

Crews will work overnight to remove an old, 80-foot-wide directional sign that has been replaced by new signs, Caltrans officials said.

Eastbound traffic on Highway 24 will remain open to traffic during the closures.

What they’re not telling us that the new bore is already undergoing seismic retrofit.

Lou – really? That’s awful! Between the Bay Bridge debacle and this I think I’ll stay in central CCCounty.

I think Lou is saying that in jest to illustrate how inept this state is with regards to infrastructure, budgeting, amd planning.

Drove through around 4:15 and noticed nothing abnormal.

Thanks Caltrans. Now, if they would only patrol their beats, and replace the timers or the lights that do not work on the roadways, it actually may be a bit safer to drive out there!

I’m Out—————–
