CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, On March 23, 2010, The County Board of Supervisors awarded an $8.5 million contract to Teichert Construction for the Vasco Road Safety Improvements Project – Phase 1. This project will be constructed with federal economic stimulus funds authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Within the 1.5 mile project limit of Vasco Road, road widening will occur to accommodate a median barrier and a passing lane in the southbound direction. Construction of drainage culverts, retaining walls and bridge widening will be also be part of this project. Construction will begin in May 2010 and is expected to continue until August 2011.
To minimize impacts to motorists, vehicle traffic will be routed through the work area behind temporary barriers away from construction operations. In addition, there will be no lane closures or other work which would adversely impact traffic during commute hours of 5:00 am to 8:30 am (southbound) and 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm (northbound).
Temporary lane closures will occur during non-commute hours, and motorists should be prepared for possible delays.
The exact dates and times of the planned lane closures will be posted along Vasco Road on electronic message boards, a minimum of 48 hours in advance.
