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.

It must have been a slow weekend. The only crime listed is a robbery outside FoodMaxx. A slightly drunk man was standing outside the discount supermarket when another guy came up to him and socked him one. The puncher ran off with the victim’s bag. I don’t know what a robber would expect to find in a bag carried by a drunk guy standing outside FoodMaxx. Maybe beer? In this case it was nothing more than t-shirt and a belt.

Washington Hospital Stroke Program Reaches Pinnacle of Recognition from the American Heart Association
Fremont, Calif. – In just a few short years since its inception, Washington Hospital’s Stroke Program has earned top honors — The Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award – which is part of the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Stroke Association (ASA)’s Get With The GuidelinesSM (GWTG) program, a national evidence-based initiative to improve stroke patients’ outcomes.
“This recognition is another validation illustrating that our Stroke Program at Washington Hospital is achieving the highest standard of care,” says Ash Jain, MD, the program’s medical director. “By meeting these measures, it means our program is doing the right thing consistently over a period of time, which is our standard of practice. We presume that by following national evidence-based standards the quality of care and quality of life is going to be better for our patients.”
According to the AHA and ASA, hospitals receiving Get With The Guidelines Gold (Sustained) Performance Achievement Award have reached an aggressive goal of treating stroke patients with 85 percent or higher compliance to core standard levels of care for 24 consecutive months.
“As a stroke program, if you are meeting these proven standards that have been documented as effective in the medical literature, then you are providing better care to your patients,” Dr. Jain says.
