Overnight Maintenance Closures on Embarcadero Road

The Public Works Department will be closing Embarcadero Road overnight for nearly two weeks to perform road maintenance and cleaning along the stretch from Emerson Street to El Camino Real. The road and pedestrian walkways will be closed from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Nov. 28-Dec. 1 and Dec. 5-8. Detours will be in place, and while the impact to the public is expected to be small, there will be minor delays.

The work is being done to deal with the dirty and unsightly problem coming from hundreds of pigeons living in the I-beams underneath the Caltrain tracks. Due to the continual maintenance clean up costs associated with this, the Public Works Department will be installing bird netting during the closure period to deter the birds from roosting in the structure.

The contractor performing the work will be making noise during these hours, but they are striving to keep the noise impact as minimal as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, City Staff is interested in hearing from you. Todd Seeley is overseeing this project, and he can be reached at (650) 496-5945 or at todd.seeley@cityofpaloalto.org.
