Caltrans crews have begun demolition of the existing bridge at Willow Road and U.S. 101. Due to the need to close freeway lanes for safety, some of this work will be done overnight when traffic volumes are lowest. This work began in mid-December and continues through mid-January. Periodic lane closures on the freeway and on Willow Road are expected during the nighttime hours. Also, full freeway closures are planned in the northbound direction Monday, Jan. 8, from midnight until 5 a.m., and in the southbound direction Tuesday, Jan. 9, from midnight until 5 a.m. Detour routes will be in place during the full closures. Noise impacts may be experienced in the adjacent neighborhoods during these times.

Additionally, to help ease the congestion within the Willows neighborhood that was exacerbated by the Willow-101 interchange construction. The following temporary turn restrictions have been implemented:
  • No right turns from Chester, Durham & O’Keefe to Willow Road, 3-7 p.m. weekdays (Except SamTrans and school buses)
  • No left turns from Woodland to Baywood, 3-7 p.m. weekdays
These restrictions will apply to all vehicles. While drivers adjust to these changes, conditions may temporarily worsen, but are expected to improve. Please drive carefully, be alert and be patient during the adjustment period. 

Keep posted with the City’s project webpage and Construction News Updates.
