Palomares Road Closure; Stonybrook Creek Crossings Project
Palomares Road is now open to through traffic! Thank you for your patience during the project to make it a success.
A portion of Palomares Road was closed for an extended period of time beginning August 3 in order to complete a bridge replacement over Stonybrook Creek. During construction, Palomares Road between postmiles 8.70 and 8.50 was closed to thru traffic through November 7th.
A public meeting was held July 20, 2016 at 6:30pm at Sunol Glen Elementary School to discuss the closure and anticipated road delays.
A follow up public meeting with the Alameda County Fire Department to discuss the concerns regarding emergency response during the Palomares Road Closure was held at Chouinard Vineyards Winery, 33853 Palomares Rd, Castro Valley, CA 94552 on Wednesday, July 27th at 6:30 pm.
The closure blocked traffic access along Palomares Road accessed from Niles Canyon Road/Hwy 84. Drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians were unable to use Palomares Road to travel between Niles Canyon/Hwy 84 and Hwy 580 for the duration of the work and needed to take alternative routes. Residents past postmile 8.50 were only able to access via Palomares Road from Hwy 580.
Emergency responders and other service providers were notified and were prepared to provide services during the road closure.
A Frequently Asked Questions sheet and a map of the closure area with alternate routes are included for your reference.
