The Redwood City Police Department, in collaboration with Caltrans, is preparing for the scheduled replacement of the Cordilleras Creek Bridge, thus, both the northbound and southbound lanes on U.S. 101 will be closed for a total of two weekend closures. The first closure will affect the southbound lanes from September 29 to October 2, while the second closure, which will impact the northbound lanes, is planned for October 13 to 16, according to the Redwood City Police Department.

Dating back to an earlier report this year by Caltrans, this aging Cordilleras Creek Bridge has reached the end of its service life and can no longer be ignored. For the safety of the broader region and to maintain a more efficient transportation system, it is vital that this infrastructure project be carried out.

During these weekend closures, the Redwood City Police Department's Motor Unit will patrol the area, ensuring a smooth flow of traffic and responding to any traffic-related issues that may arise. The department has urged community members and commuters to exercise caution, adhere to traffic laws, and be aware of increased traffic enforcement throughout the weekends. This collective effort can create a safer environment for all users of the highways and local roads.

In order to minimize potential headaches and delays for commuters, the Caltrans website offers more detailed information about this critical infrastructure project, including detour routes and updates. Residents are encouraged to visit the Caltrans website for the latest information.
