Roadwork Continues on San Antonio Road Project

Drivers should expect lane closures.

Drivers should expect delays at the intersection of Middlefield and San Antonio Road Monday, as the City of Palo Alto begins to add a left-turn lane onto San Antonio Road.

“Right now there’s only one,” said Elizabeth Ames, senior engineer in Palo Alto’s Public Works department.

The City’s Public Works department will be closing a lane on Middlefield Road starting at 9 a.m.

“When you’re going from Mountain View to Palo Alto, it’s going to be the right hand lane closest to the curb,” Ames said. 

The city will also be closing a lane on southbound San Antonio Road to make a safe work zone for construction workers.  These lane closures are part of the San Antonio Landscape, Median & Road Improvement Project, which began in November 2011.

The intention of the project is to "provide a long term solution that will prevent problems associated with tree roots, improved road surface for vehicular and bicycle travel, reduce costly on-going road repairs and provide an aesthetic median planting to complete the San Antonio corridor,” according to the City of Palo Alto’s project website.

Lanes are expected to reopen at 4 p.m. every day through the duration of the project.  Crews expect to be working on the intersection through September.
