Marsh Creek Rd. Construction To Cause Traffic Delays From May 20 – July 1

The Contra Costa County Public Works Department will begin construction of the Marsh Creek Road Traffic Safety Improvements project next week.

The project will consist of installing a centerline rumble strip, restriping of the centerline, and traffic sign replacement and upgrades along the 14-mile stretch of Marsh Creek Road between the cities of Clayton and Brentwood.

Improvements will also include a streetlight installation on a wooden pole, and two solar flashing beacons at the intersection of Marsh Creek Road and Deer Valley Road.

Construction will begin on Monday, May 20, with completion by July 1, 2019, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Drivers can expect traffic delays up to 30 minutes. Work hours will be 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to minimize impacts to commute traffic.

I hope they do something at the Marsh Creek Road and Camino Diablo intersection. When you are on Camino Diablo at the stop sign that meets Marsh Creek Road it is very hard to look around that bend to see if cars are coming.

Also if people just did the speed limit and stayed on their side of the road on Marsh Creek Road it would be much safer.

NO! I don’t want streetlights on MCR!

Work hours will be 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to minimize impacts to commute traffic. Why not work with night hours, that would be the least impact on the drivers.

Doing construction on that road is dangerous in the daytime, let alone at night!

A 3 way stop at Morgan Territory would be nice.
Speeding drivers make it unsafe.

Agree, a traffic signal there is long over due but will probably never happen.

Road work at night on Marsh Creek Road would be terribly dangerous for both the drivers and for the workers. Also, the morning inbound commute on that route is heaviest VERY early in the morning because of drivers having to get from Central Valley to “wherever” and be on time for work.
I wish they would widen it to four lanes so that it can take its rightful place as an effective evacuation route for our valley!

Noooooo. Keep it a small rural road. Since they are building so much out there, maybe more business should move to Modesto and Stockton so those people who live in Tracy or MT. House and other points in the Valley don’t have to commute by every road possible to avoid Hwy4 and 580.
