Part of Louis Road Temporarily Closing for Roadwork

The City of Palo Alto will be doing a full closure of Louis Road between Marshall and Bruce Drive for nine days, starting on Thursday, June 21 to Friday, June 29 in order to finish construction currently underway on Louis Road between Moreno and Amarillo Avenue.

The City heard from the community who spoke at the June 12 City Council Study Session on the Neighborhood Traffic Safety and Bicycle Boulevard project and is now slowing down the project for more engagement. In the meantime, this small stretch of Louis Road is currently incomplete and crews will work to finish it as soon as possible.

A team of staff members went door-to-door on Friday, June 15 to inform residents of this accelerated construction effort to get this section of Louis Road functional before the July 4 Independence Day holiday. Staff also discussed this street closure work with residents on adjoining streets between Ross and Greer, south of Oregon Expressway that may see detoured traffic during the nine-day Louis Road closure. 

The roadwork will include milling, paving, and art installation. Utility work has recently been completed. 

We appreciate the community sharing their feedback on this project and the City is committed to further community engagement before starting any new construction related to the Neighborhood Traffic Safety and Bicycle Boulevard project.

If you have questions or would like to speak to staff, please stop by the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple, 2751 Louis Road, on Monday, June 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
