Beginning Wednesday, April 5, 2017, Palomares Road is closed to all thru traffic, between Palo Verde Road, Castro Valley, and Niles Canyon Road, Fremont. The road is impassable at mile marker 8.73.
This closure is expected to last through Friday, May 5, 2017. During this time, contractors will be removing hazards including loose dirt, rocks and debris from the hillside. Once the debris has been removed, contractors will install safety measures to stabilize the hillside to prevent further movement.
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to avoid the areas and use alternate routes. Since the roadway will be fully closed at mile marker 8.73, residents on either side of the closure will need to access their homes from either Palo Verde Road or Niles Canyon Road as appropriate.
