Work starts on temporary Atherton library quarters

Parking, traffic conditions may be affected during month-long work

In preparation for the beginning of construction on Atherton's new civic center complex, the town has begun a month of work at the corner of Dinkelspiel Station Lane and Maple Avenue to ready the area for a temporary library building.

From March 7 to April 7 the contractor is scheduled to prepare the site for a modular building, often known as a portable, and install access for people with disabilities.

Construction fencing and tree protection will go in first. Parking will be limited along Dinkelspiel Station Lane and parking restrictions on Maple Avenue will be strictly enforced, the town says.

There may be minor traffic delays near the construction site.

The library and town offices will continue to operate as usual during the project.

For more information, contact Rick Smelser at 408-916-5092 or Atherton's Public Works Department at 650-752-0555.
