Alert: Traffic Delays & Road Closures

Encinal Avenue: Caltrans is repaving and making other improvements to Encinal Avenue between Broadway and Sherman Street in December, providing motorists with a smoother ride, and enhancing safety for pedestrians and wheelchair users. In addition to repaving, the work includes upgrading existing curb ramps, enhancing crosswalk markings, upgrading signals with accessible pedestrian signals, and installing vehicle speed feedback signs. 

Mariner Square Drive: The City of Alameda expects to begin reconstructing the pavement on Mariner Square Drive between Constitution Way and Marina Village Parkway on December 5. This project will take two weeks to complete, and during construction the City’s contractor will implement a full road closure, 24 hours a day. Road users will need to use other routes to travel through the area or access properties in the immediate area. Detour signs and temporary traffic control will guide motorists through Marina Village Parkway.
