Buskirk Avenue in Pleasant Hill will be undergoing an improvement, reconstruction and widening project. In addition, drainage improvements, new pedestrian and bike facilities, new pavement and striping will be added to the Avenue.
As part of this project:
- Buskirk Avenue will be realigned with a new traffic signal at the Buskirk Avenue/Clarie Drive intersection.
- A new traffic signal will be installed at the new Buskirk Avenue/Contra Costa Center southwesterly driveway access intersection.
- A new, free sweeping 90 degree roadway curve and traffic island calming feature will be added to the eastern section of Hookston Road north to the new Buskirk Avenue/Clarie Drive intersection.
- New ornamental street lighting, sidewalks and landscape features will be incorporated into the project in order to enhance the appearance of the corridor.

The City of Pleasant Hill’s website provides a way to get text or email notifications about the project.
