Construction on Mission from I-680 all the way to the Union City/Hayward border.
State Route 238 (Mission Blvd.) Rehabilitation Project
August 12, 2010
Construction is beginning for the State Route 238 (Mission Blvd.) Rehabilitation Project. The project will rehabilitate eight miles of roadway, from Interstate 680 in Fremont to the Union City/Hayward city limit.
The majority of work will involve one-lane closures, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will allow the noisiest construction activities to be completed during the day, rather than at night. Two weekend closures of one lane in each direction are also planned in order to repave at the railroad undercrossing east of Stevenson Blvd. Detour information will be provided on the Caltrans District 4 website when the contractor schedules this work.
Construction activities for the eight-mile long project will include removal of failed asphalt concrete pavement, grinding existing asphalt to a desired depth, overlaying roadway with rubberized asphalt concrete, installation of loop detectors (sensors that provides traffic monitoring data, traffic signals timing), signal & lighting, and other electrical equipment, placement of a seal coat, and minor work, such as guard rails, sidewalks and curb ramps, drainage construction and pavement delineation. To reduce the impact on schools in the area, when possible, construction activities adjacent to schools will take place during the summer break.
