Motorists are advised that the northbound lane of Front Street between Diablo Road and Rose Street will be closed for the next several weeks as crews begin work on the Front Street Creek Bank Stabilization project.
Located downstream from the Diablo Road Bridge, the project will repair a creek bank failure caused by heavy rains in 2014 along San Ramon Creek.
The project includes construction of a retaining wall designed to shore up the creek bank, prevent further landslides, and protect the roadway. Once the retaining wall has been completed, large boulders and native plants will be installed to provide additional stability to the bank. During the project, the Town is coordinating with PG&E to temporarily relocate power poles in the construction zone.
Traffic through the area will be impacted by the work, and a traffic control plan will be in place to assist motorists in getting through the work zone and to all businesses in that area. Work is expected to be completed by summer 2019.
