Contra Costa County Public Works to begin Construction of the Marsh Drive Bridge Replacement Project

Marsh Drive (Concord) Bridge Replacement Project Press ReleaseJune 2, 2021, Concord, CA – Contra Costa County Public Works will begin construction of the Marsh Drive Bridge Replacement Project starting on Monday, June 7, 2021 through January 2023, barring unforeseen circumstances. Work will occur between 7:00 am-4:00 pm, Monday-Friday, weather permitting. Work will take place on Marsh Drive, approximately 0.2 miles west of Solano Avenue, in both unincorporated Contra Costa County and the City of Concord. There will be restrictions to minimize impacts during commute hours. The speed limit through the work area will be 25 mph during construction. Drivers should expect delays. 

The project will include reconstruction of approximately 1,000 feet of Marsh Drive near the bridge, installation of a retaining wall, channel improvements, and relocation of various utilities including water, electric power, and communication facilities. Work includes replacing the existing bridge with a new concrete bridge in a slightly shifted alignment to the north in stages built to current standards. The new bridge will include a 10-foot-wide separated bike and pedestrian facility. 

Funding for this project is provided by Federal Highway Bridge Program Funds, Local Road Funds, Contra Costa County Flood Control District Zone 3B Funds, Pacific Gas & Electric Funds, Contra Costa Water District Funds, and East Bay Regional Park District Funds.

First CalFresh Readjustment in Nearly 50 Years Helps Support Families and Boost Economic Activity

For the first time in nearly 50 years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has adjusted the Thrifty Food Plan to reflect changes in the food marketplace, dietary guidance, consumption patterns, and current food prices. This readjustment resulted in an increase to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.

In California, this increase applies to the CalFresh program as of October 1st. The maximum CalFresh benefit for a typical family of four - excluding additional funds that are part of pandemic relief - has increased by $1.20 per person per day. As a result, families may see a boost in CalFresh benefits by up to 21% over pre-pandemic benefit levels, depending on their household size.

You can learn more about the increase and what it means for Contra Costa County by viewing the CalFresh Benefits Increase Fact Sheet.

Bay Area Health Officials Urge Immediate Vaccination and Issue Orders Requiring Use of Face Coverings Indoors to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

Vaccination continues to protect against severe COVID-19 illness, but with the COVID-19 Delta variant now infecting a small percentage of vaccinated people as well as many unvaccinated people, eight Bay Area health officers have issued health orders requiring masks indoors in public places.

The orders require all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings, with limited exceptions, starting at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, August 3rd.

Vaccines remain the most powerful tool in the fight against COVID-19, including the Delta variant. Nonetheless, the Delta variant is infecting a small percentage of the vaccinated in the Bay Area — who still remain strongly protected against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. In those instances of infection in a vaccinated person, a face-covering prevents further spread. Bay Area health officials urge all unvaccinated residents 12 and older to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

To read the full press release and the Health Order please visit Contra Costa Health Services COVID-19 website.

COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination or Test Required for Some Contra Costa Businesses


Contra Costa County joined San Francisco, Berkeley and other communities across the U.S. today with a countywide health order that increases COVID-19 safety in restaurants, gyms and other indoor businesses where there is elevated risk of the virus spreading.

The new order, effective September 22, requires patrons of these businesses to show proof they are fully vaccinated to enter indoor areas, or a negative COVID-19 test result from the past three days.

Contra Costa has endured a severe spike in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations this summer due to the increasing prevalence of the highly infectious delta variant of the virus and unvaccinated residents. To read the full press release, please visit Contra Costa Health Services.
