One lane of traffic will be closed along a portion of State Route 84 through the rest of the month and into September, Caltrans announced over the weekend.
The transit agency said crews started repairing pavement along the stretch of the highway between Old La Honda Road and State Route 35 as of Monday, Aug. 21. The one-way traffic control will be in effect Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the roadwork is expected to be completed sometime in September, according to Caltrans.
“Caltrans understands this highway traffic control may impact the daily commute for residents who live near Woodside and Portola Valley,” the agency said in an Aug. 19 statement. “Crews will assist residents with access as needed. Residents living near the road work should expect some noise due to the grinding, but Caltrans will monitor the noise levels and adjust (the) schedule if needed.”
Caltrans advised the public to plan for possible delays and consider alternate routes.
This is not the only road closure that Highway 84 commuters are contending with. A bit further north, crews continue to work on repairs between Foxhill and Portola roads following the March landslide, which prompted a full closure of Highway 84 for months. That portion of the two-lane highway reopened to one-way traffic in late July.
