UPDATED: Nighttime Roadwork to Begin Oct. 15

Between Oct. 15 and 20, the City of Concord will have construction crews performing nighttime roadwork in two parts of the city, resulting in roadway closures and detours between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. See map image.

The two projects are:  

Willow Pass Road, between Landana Drive and Avila Road (toward Highway 4) will be fully closed at night starting Sunday, Oct. 15, for five consecutive nights. This closure will allow the contractor to safely perform long needed repairs to the base pavement and overlay a fresh layer of asphalt. 

Grant Street, approaching and passing underneath CA 242, will have intermittent nighttime closures starting on Sunday, Oct. 15, and continuing through the end of the month. These are anticipated to be partial, not full closures, to accommodate work on curb ramps and storm drain inlets in preparation of the paving work planned to start in November. During the night work, the contractor will maintain at least one lane of traffic throughout the area and will detour traffic whenever an on-ramp or off-ramp is temporarily affected and closed. The Grant Street and CA 242 northbound off-ramp will remain operational during the Market Street at CA 242 closures as part of the designated detour route.

In addition to this work, construction on the Meadow Lane/Market Street paving project (at Clayton Road and CA-242) will get underway during daytime hours beginning on Monday, Oct. 16.  The contractor will be paving along Market Street and Meadow Lane between North Belmont Road and Monument Boulevard during typical daytime construction hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Please be mindful of traffic delays if you are planning to use Market Street and Meadow Lane. One travel lane in each direction will be maintained for vehicles throughout the work period.

In addition to notifying all emergency services dispatch, including fire and police, and local transit agencies, 511 will also be informed. The 511 traffic alert service typically updates map navigation apps to help individuals avoid these closure areas. 

Concord’s extensive roadwork is the result of the City’s two-year, $120 million Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) budget, made possible by voters’ 2020 approval of Measure V, a one-cent use and transaction tax intended to maintain a reliable source of local funding. Measure V generates about $32 million annually and is invested by the City Council into community-identified priorities, including roadway improvements throughout the community. 

For additional information, people are encouraged to visit the dedicated CIP project pages, which are updated with the latest schedule and project progress information and can be accessed at
