Stanley Boulevard between First Street and Main Street in downtown Pleasanton was closed this morning to all traffic for up to six weeks for reconstruction.
The aging street, often referred to as "old" Stanley, is a major link from where the same section of roadway called Stanley becomes First Street, then Sunol Boulevard and continues through Pleasanton to I-680 and Castlewood.
From Main Street, old Stanley provides a direct route to the Stanley/Sunol roadway next to the Alain Pinel Realtors building at 900 Main St.
Ghilotti Construction Company, Inc. has been hired to handle the project, which will include the undergrounding of overhead utilities followed by street reconstruction, including new curbs, gutters, sidewalks, bike lanes, street lights similar to those downtown and landscaping.
The new roadway will have parallel parking spaces on the north side. No parking will be permitted on the south side.
