City, civic and business and regional leaders from Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore and Alameda County will cut a ribbon at 10 a.m. today opening the extension of Stoneridge Drive to El Charro Road.
The ceremony will be held just west of the intersection of Stoneridge Drive and Stoneridge Creek Way, a new road linking the Stoneridge Creek retirement community to Stoneridge.
Those attending the ceremony should take I-580 to the El Charro exit, drive a short block south, and enter Stoneridge Drive at the traffic signal. When the festivities are over, Pleasanton motorists can use Stoneridge for the first time to get back home.
Stoneridge Drive, which will now connect from Jack London Boulevard in Livermore to Foothill Road at its western terminus, has been in Pleasanton's roadway plans since 1989.
After the ribbon cutting ceremony, Stoneridge Creek will hold an invitation-only celebration officially opening the first phase of the complex, giving at least 200 seniors the opportunity to move into their new upscale homes this year. Eventually, Stoneridge Creek will offer 635 independent living condos and homes.
