The City of Dublin has had longtime plans to widen a stretch of Dublin Boulevard (between Dublin Court and Sierra Lane) from two lanes to three. This stretch of older road is the last remaining stretch of Dublin Boulevard that needs to be widened and upgraded with underground utilities.
There will be three phases of construction, currently scheduled to begin in mid-June 2017:
Phase 1A - Dublin San Ramon Services District (DSRSD) will relocate a sewer lift station situated near Murco Plaza. For more detailed information on this phase of the project, please visit www.dsrsd.com/sewer-lift. (August 2017 - March 2018)
Phase 1B - The City will be working with PG&E and other agencies to relocate utilities to underground. (Late May 2017 - March 2018)
Phase 2 - The widening of Dublin Boulevard will include expanding the road from two to three lanes of traffic; construction of Class 2 bike lanes and upgrading traffic signals for bicyclist detection; asphalt surfacing; streetscape improvements; and installation of new median islands, curb and gutters, landscaping, and driveway and sidewalk for better accessibility. (March 2018 - January 2019)
How This Might Affect Your Commute
Due to the high-traffic volumes on Dublin Boulevard, the work will likely be scheduled during the nighttime hours (9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. for phase 1A, and 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. for phase 1B and phase 2) to minimize impacts. During each phase of the work, one lane of traffic may be closed in each direction. For phase 1A, the DSRSD pump relocation, there is one short period of work (less than two weeks) where westbound traffic may be detoured onto eastbound lanes; however, no closures of Dublin Boulevard are expected.
