Hauling for Downtown Underground Public Parking Garage to Occasionally Take Place in Evenings and Weekends

Redwood City, CA - January 13, 2004 - The major excavation and other construction work for the downtown underground two-level public parking garage is proceeding on schedule, with huge amounts of dirt being hauled out of the site. The dirt is being taken to the end of Seaport Boulevard where it is being used to help compact and settle existing soil at the site of a proposed marina development.

Rock from other sources must be brought to that Seaport Boulevard site to create a stable roadway for the trucks hauling dirt from the garage excavation. Approximately once or twice per week, the creation of that stable roadway will preclude the City’s dirt trucks from delivering their loads during the day; on those occasions, the hauling will take place from 4 pm until midnight. Again, this is expected to occur only once or twice per week. On rare occasions, there may be dirt hauling during the day on a weekend.

The trucks hauling dirt from the garage site travel up Middlefield Road, then east on Woodside Road to Seaport Boulevard. Pedestrians, bicyclist and motorists are urged to use caution around the construction site and haul route during this activity. The City apologizes for any inconvenience or additional noise that the occasional night hauling may cause. The contractor has a full time street sweeper that will remove dirt and mud from this route during the hauling to ensure that the streets remain clean.

Anyone with Internet access can view the ongoing work via the City’s new construction project webcam, by visiting This webcam will remain active for the duration of the entire project, from the garage excavation through completion of the retail-cinema project. Information about the City and its services, the community, recreation programs, education, and City government is also available at
