US-101 DECK REPLACEMENT JULY 5-30, 2020
July 5-30, 2020: A great time to telework or take vacation !

During the summer of 2020 Caltrans plans to demolish and replace the deck of U.S. 101 at Alemany Circle north of the U.S. 101 and I-280 interchange in San Francisco. The project will have approximately a one month significant impact on regional and local traffic. During construction vehicle capacity will be reduced on U.S. 101 and traffic will be detoured through Alemany off and on ramp with major delays during peak commute hours.

Motorists should plan on delays and significant traffic during peak commute hours of 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM and are highly encouraged to avoid the area or use alternate transportation . The project will reduce lane capacity from 3 lanes to 2 in the northbound direction for approximately 20 days. There will also be a reduction in speed from 50 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour as traffic is routed onto city streets at varied intervals in both southbound and northbound directions. Please drive safely!
The Hillsdale Blues
One of the parking lots at the Hillsdale Station will be closed starting January 27, 2020. Later in the spring (date TBD), the entire station will be closed and our shuttles will likely be moving to Belmont Station. We will keep you informed of the changes and will distribute revised shuttle schedules as needed.

More on this project here.
