Half-Block of Hamilton & Middlefield to be Closed for Streetscape Work
Redwood City, CA - March 21, 2006 - As the downtown renaissance continues, significant streetscape work is scheduled to begin on portions of Hamilton Street and Middlefield Road, north of Broadway. This work will consist of removing the curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, and rebuilding and extending them into what is currently the existing roadway. In order to do this, the roadway itself in that area must be removed, and therefore closed to traffic during the work.
The closure of approximately a half-block of both Hamilton Street and Middlefield Road (see map) to the north of Broadway is scheduled to begin on Monday March 27th, and will continue through mid-May (schedule is subject to change due to weather or other circumstances).
Appropriate signage and detours will be in place as of the start of this temporary closure. All businesses in this area will remain open and accessible to pedestrian traffic during this road closure.
The City would like to thank motorists, pedestrians, and especially the businesses in the affected area for their patience and understanding, and apologizes for this inconvenience. The temporary street closure is necessary to minimize the overall construction time and impact. This short-term inconvenience will lead to the entire community’s enjoyment of the new streetscape and other downtown improvements.
More information on the Downtown Renaissance is available on the City’s website at www.redwoodcity.org. The City has also installed a 24-hour phone message line for people to leave their questions and comments about Downtown projects – the Question Line number is 650-780-7563. Staff will check messages daily and respond as needed.
