Bridge Inspections, Closures Continue
The Alameda County Public Works Agency (ACPW) will close traffic lanes on the Park Street Bridge and High Street Bridge on different days beginning in April. The closures are necessary for engineering teams to perform bridge inspections. The lane closures will be during non-peak hours and at night. Detour signs will be posted. Motorists are advised to use caution when driving through the area.
ACPW coordinated with local, state and federal agencies to gain permission for highly specialized bridge experts to conduct the inspections. Bridges will be assessed for safety in both day-to-day operations and during an emergency.
High Street Bridge
Thursday, April 5, and tomorrow, Friday, April 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, all lanes will be closed on the High Street Bridge. A detour will be posted.
Park Street Bridge
From Monday, April 9, through Thursday, April 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, lanes will be closed on the Park Street Bridge. Motorists may only have access to one lane of traffic. On Wednesday night, April 11, all lanes will be closed from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. A detour will be posted.
Inspections on the Miller-Sweeney (Fruitvale Avenue) Bridge was completed earlier this week.
