Roadwork crews have rescheduled the start of the upcoming closure of westbound Vallecitos Road in Livermore to all vehicular traffic from Highway 84 while construction of retaining walls and drainage systems are installed, according to Caltrans.
The temporary closure, set to be in place for at least two months, was scheduled to start on Saturday, but it was postponed to this Friday (March 17) because the project's contractor deemed conditions too wet to begin work, according to Marcus Wagner, Caltrans public information officer for the agency's 4th District.
Detours will be in place, but officials advise drivers to expect delays and consider taking alternate routes if necessary. Caltrans also reminded motorists that traffic fines are doubled in construction zones.
Editor's note: A previous version of this story stated the closure began as scheduled Saturday. Caltrans later confirmed that was not the case and the closure was rescheduled to start this coming Friday. The Pleasanton Weekly regrets the error.
