Final Phase of Culvert Relocation Work to Close Jefferson at Broadway for Two Days

Redwood City, CA - November 3, 2003 - Redwood City, CA – This Saturday and Sunday mark the final phase of the underground storm water culvert relocation project in downtown Redwood City. The ‘old’ culvert that remains underneath the roadway near the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Broadway must be back-filled with dirt, requiring the closure of Jefferson for two days.

Starting Saturday November 8th at 7:00 am and ending Monday November 10th at 5:00 am, Jefferson Avenue will be closed to through traffic at Broadway. Broadway will remain open to traffic.

At the same time, work is progressing at the Broadway entrance to the Main Street parking lot to connect the new culvert to the existing system. That entrance to the Main Street lot will remain closed, as it is now, until the end of November.

The City would like to remind the public that the businesses in the area remain open. Motorists are urged to consider alternate routes, use extra caution when driving in the area, and to be aware of detours, slow traffic, and construction equipment and crews. Pedestrians are also asked to exercise additional caution in the area. The City would like to thank drivers, pedestrians, and businesses in the affected area for their patience and understanding, and apologize for any inconvenience that occurs as a result of this work. This culvert relocation is necessary so that excavation of Redwood City’s underground garage, and ultimately the retail/cinema project, may take place.
