Changes to Hesperian/Jackson interchange

 If you use Jackson Street to get to and from Hesperian Boulevard, for example if you’re a Chabot College student, take heed: Motorists on Hesperian Boulevard will not be able to access Jackson Street for travel toward the downtown area beginning Saturday, as a split will divide traffic for Jackson and Interstate 880 before it crosses Hesperian.

The split will remain in place for the time being, according to Caltrans, but the configuration will allow for access to Jackson sometime before the project is completed in late summer or fall.

Motorists are advised to take Hesperian to either Winton Avenue or Tennyson Road to travel east into Hayward.

Illuminated message signs will advise drivers of the changes.

For more information about the project, go to www.i880corridor.com and click on the SR-92/I-880 link. There’s a map of what’s going on to help clarify things.
