Highway 101 Bridge Construction Update Sept. 21 – Oct. 30, 2015

This work is part of the San Francisquito Creek Bridge Replacement to be completed in the spring of 2018. Here's a project schedule for September 21 – October 30 (Monday-Friday) for the Highway 101 Bridge Construction. 

Caltrans’ contractor for the Highway 101/San Francisquito Creek Bridge Replacement Project intends to complete the initial stage of bridge replacement work and remove all construction equipment and materials from the creek (including removal of bridge deck falsework, cofferdams, and temporary bypass piping) by Thursday, October 15.

September 16 – (day work)
Pile driving on the west side of the bridge was completed on Wednesday, September 16. Pile driving will resume sometime in November, 2015, to construct the sound walls at the West Bayshore Road Bridge. 

September 21 - 30, Monday – Friday (day work)
On Monday, September 21, through Friday, October 30, crews will continue to construct the bridge piers for the new San Francisquito Creek Bridge. This work will take place during daytime hours. 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

September 30 – October 15, Monday – Friday (day work)
Crews will begin to construct the new bridge deck on southbound Route 101 during daytime hours between, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Residents may notice increased noise from pile driving equipment and mandatory backup alarms while the contractor is working in the construction zone.

Each stage of construction, the highway will be reconfigured to shift traffic from the section being constructed until completion in early 2018.

In April/May of 2016, the northbound and southbound traffic will be moved towards the outside shoulders of the highway as the middle section is replaced.

In April/May 2017, the northbound and southbound lanes will be moved toward the west to provide room between East Bayshore Road and the northbound 101 lanes to construct the last portion of the bridge within the highway.

Schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions and/or sequencing of work.
