The I-80/San Pablo Dam Road interchange is about to get a major improvement!
The interchange was redesigned to provide more road capacity and a safer crossing for pedestrians and bicyclists. The project is a collaboration between the Contra Costa Transportation Authority and the City of San Pablo.
Construction continues on El Portal Drive with an anticipated completion in early summer of 2017. For the months of March through April the work will consist of demolition and reconstruction of sound walls, relocation of existing utilities, sidewalk reconstruction and the reconstruction/realignment of El Portal Drive and the eastbound I-80 off ramp at El Portal Drive. Weather permitting, this work will be completed by early April, 2016.
The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) is a public agency formed by Contra Costa voters in 1988 to manage the county’s transportation sales tax program and to do countywide transportation planning.
CCTA is responsible for maintaining and improving the county’s transportation system by planning, funding, and delivering critical transportation infrastructure projects and programs that connect our communities, foster a strong economy, increase sustainability, and safely and efficiently get people where they need to go. CCTA is also the county’s designated Congestion Management Agency (CMA), responsible for putting programs in place to keep traffic levels manageable.
