The New Geary Road Bridge to Open on Feb. 7

We are excited to announce that the new Geary Road Bridge will be ready for use on Friday, Feb. 7th! The new 150-foot-long concrete and weathered-steel bridge has replaced an old bridge that was unable to support the weight of the large vehicles that use it regularly. It crosses Alameda Creek downstream of Calaveras and Alameda Creek Diversion Dams, and is located within the East Bay Regional Park District’s Sunol Ohlone Wilderness Park leased lands. This new bridge will protect Alameda Creek at this location by eliminating the need for large vehicles to drive through the creek’s low-water crossing. Planting and restoration of the site are underway. 

Thanks to the East Bay Regional Park District staff, park visitors, private landowners, lease holders and all members of the public in the area for their patience during construction. To see how the new Geary Road Bridge was constructed , take a few moments to check out our project video:
