Construction Work Starts This Week for Bridge Replacement Project inside Sunol Ohlone Regional Wilderness Park

The SFPUC is constructing a new bridge to replace the existing unreliable Geary Road Bridge with a new concrete and steel bridge. The new bridge will protect Alameda Creek at this location by eliminating the need for vehicles to drive through Alameda Creek at the low-water crossing. The area will be restored after construction.

The project area is located inside the Sunol Ohlone Regional Wilderness Park, just south of Leyden Flats before it connects to McCorkle Trail and Camp Ohlone Road, where it crosses Alameda Creek. (See map below).

When: May 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013

What to Expect:
• The area will be closed to the public during construction, Monday through Friday, for safety reasons.
• Park users should use the Canyon View Trail footbridge to cross Alameda Creek. Please pay attention to posted trail closure signs!
• The area will be open to park users on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Please proceed with caution.

Work hours:
• Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
• No work on weekends or holidays
