Contra Costa County Public Works
to Begin Construction on Walnut Creek Crosswalk Improvements.
June 16, 2020, Walnut Creek, CA – The Contra Costa County Public Works Department will begin construction of the Walnut Creek Crosswalk Improvements Project. Construction will begin on Monday, June 22, 2020 and is anticipated to be completed on August 14, 2020. Construction will take place Mondays through Fridays, between the hours of 7:00 am-5:00 pm with restrictions to minimize impacts during commute hours. Drivers could expect up to 15 minute delays during road work. The work to be done generally consists of installing flashing beacons at two crosswalk locations in unincorporated Walnut Creek; at the intersection of Olympic Blvd and Bridgefield Road (Site 1) and the intersection of Walden Road and Westcliffe Lane (Site 2). Work at both locations includes installation of detectable warning surfaces at the ends of the crosswalks, trenching and installation of conduits, electrical cable, pull boxes and electrical service pedestals. All improvements are designed to increase public safety at these locations. Current shelter-in-place and social distancing protocols will be followed.
This project is funded by the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), the Transportation Development Act (TDA) and gas tax funds. More information for this project can be found at http://www.cccounty.us/pwdmap.
