A Balancing Act - Work + Life + Commute
Employer Symposium now a webinar
Wednesday, March 11th @ 10 AM
Due to the increased concern in the San Francisco Bay Area regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the off-site meeting restrictions that are being enacted by many companies, we have changed the format of our upcoming symposium to make it an online event. While we will miss seeing all of you in-person, your health and safety are our top priorities.

The online symposium will start at 10:00 AM and will last approximately 90 minutes. All our speakers and presenters have graciously agreed to participate in this new format.

If you registered for the in-person event, then you should already have received a confirmation email for the Zoom webinar. If you have not signed up, please click here to register for the webinar.

Help us spread the word about this event as it will now be easier for people from all over the Bay Area to participate.

US-101 ALEMANY CIRCLE DECK REPLACEMENT:
JULY 7-28, 2020
July 7-28, 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, just north of the U.S. 101 and I-280 interchange in San Francisco. The project will have a significant impact on regional and local traffic for approximately 3 weeks . During construction, traffic will be detoured through Alemany to an 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 . Lane capacity will be reduced for safety and to save lives, a 35 mph speed limit will be strongly enforced at all project detours. Please drive safely! (Or don't drive at all!)
