Overnight closure for tonight canceled, tomorrow’s still set.

** UPDATE #40-A **

THE SCHEDULED OVERNIGHT CLOSURE FOR TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, HAS BEEN CANCELLED. TOMORROW’S (THURSDAY) OVERNIGHT CLOSURE IS STILL SCHEDULED!

Also, thanks to the efforts of Ken Wright, a new procedure is in place for weekends. Dan (the project engineer) plans to have three flaggers on-site every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM until the end of the summer. The flaggers have been instructed to allow the signals to control the traffic as much as possible and provide flagging when the traffic volumes get too high or if the signals malfunction. This strategy is mainly in consideration for worker safety; the less they are exposed to live traffic the safer the situation. The flaggers are employees of the contractor, Golden State Bridge Inc., and the cost is about $8000 per weekend. The money comes from the project’s contingency balance and was authorized by contract modification.

  1. It’s weird that the closure info isn’t on their website or telephone info (which just speaks the info on the website…).

  2. As it seems to read here, one lane will be open each night…

  3. No, not weird at all. They’ve trained us all to expect the emails to the chamber, me, property owners association, and a few others, counting on us to pass it on, i guess. Suzanne relies more on email, Colin on the website. Both PIOs.

  4. No, there IS only one lane at ALL times. THIS lane will be closed Thursday night, starting at 9 pm, and not open again until Friday morning at 7 am
