With over 350 miles of trail in place throughout nine counties, stuff is bound to happen. The Bay Trail Project will make every effort to alert the public to trail segments that are closed or detoured for upgrade, repair, or hazardous conditions. But that’s a lot of trail — let us know if we missed something major!
Temporary Bay Trail Closure at Hamilton in Novato
A small breach in the levee supporting the Bay Trail at Hamilton (click here), north of the Reservoir Hill Trail, has the Bay Trail closed for the next several days while crews make repairs.
Temporary Bay Trail Closure in East Palo Alto
The San Francisquito Creek JPA’s Bay to Highway 101 Project has completed construction of the flood protection features, and the contractor is now finishing minor work to close out the project. Crews will lay base rock on the pathway from Verbena Drive to Daphne Way and make other grading improvements to the new trail behind the new flood wall. This work will necessitate intermittent trail closures in East Palo Alto from East Bayshore Road to the O’Connor Street entrance. The detour route runs from East Bayshore Road, to Pulgas Avenue extending to O’Connor Street.
Work is scheduled from January 28 to February 8, 2019 from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. The trail will reopen as soon as possible. Should you have any questions regarding this construction, please contact neighborhood liaison Hope Abe at firstname.lastname@example.org or (408) 630-3063.
Possible Delays at the Bay Bridge Trail — September through December 2018
MTC and Caltrans are working on roadway improvements near the Bay Bridge Trail which may result in 10 minute delays on the trail. The Bay Bridge Trail will remain open at its normal hours during construction. See the construction notice for details.
Trail Closures at Bedwell Bayfront Park in Menlo Park
Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge has launched a levee maintenance and habitat enhancement project at the Refuge’s Ravenswood Ponds, on lands directly south of the City of Menlo Park’s Bedwell Bayfront Park. Maintenance work will shore up and repair pond levees, and, as part of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, ponds will be enhanced to create and improve wildlife habitat and build a new public trail. Trucks will need to drive through the Park entrance and on part of a San Francisco Bay Trail/Park perimeter trail that loops around the edge of the Park to reach Refuge lands. To protect public safety, the impacted Park areas and trail segments will be closed when trucks are present. Click here to sign up for e-mail blasts about the project.
