Contra Costa County Public Works to begin Construction of the Marsh Drive Bridge Replacement Project
June 2, 2021, Concord, CA – Contra Costa County Public Works will begin construction of the Marsh Drive Bridge Replacement Project starting on Monday, June 7, 2021 through January 2023, barring unforeseen circumstances. Work will occur between 7:00 am-4:00 pm, Monday-Friday, weather permitting. Work will take place on Marsh Drive, approximately 0.2 miles west of Solano Avenue, in both unincorporated Contra Costa County and the City of Concord. There will be restrictions to minimize impacts during commute hours. The speed limit through the work area will be 25 mph during construction. Drivers should expect delays.
The project will include reconstruction of approximately 1,000 feet of Marsh Drive near the bridge, installation of a retaining wall, channel improvements, and relocation of various utilities including water, electric power, and communication facilities. Work includes replacing the existing bridge with a new concrete bridge in a slightly shifted alignment to the north in stages built to current standards. The new bridge will include a 10-foot-wide separated bike and pedestrian facility.
Funding for this project is provided by Federal Highway Bridge Program Funds, Local Road Funds, Contra Costa County Flood Control District Zone 3B Funds, Pacific Gas & Electric Funds, Contra Costa Water District Funds, and East Bay Regional Park District Funds.
Additional project information, including construction schedule, is available at www.contracosta.ca.gov/marshdrivebridge

Bay Area Health Officials Urge Immediate Vaccination and Issue Orders Requiring Use of Face Coverings Indoors to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
Vaccination continues to protect against severe COVID-19 illness, but with the COVID-19 Delta variant now infecting a small percentage of vaccinated people as well as many unvaccinated people, eight Bay Area health officers have issued health orders requiring masks indoors in public places.
The orders require all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings, with limited exceptions, starting at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, August 3rd.
Vaccines remain the most powerful tool in the fight against COVID-19, including the Delta variant. Nonetheless, the Delta variant is infecting a small percentage of the vaccinated in the Bay Area — who still remain strongly protected against severe illness, hospitalization, and death. In those instances of infection in a vaccinated person, a face-covering prevents further spread. Bay Area health officials urge all unvaccinated residents 12 and older to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
To read the full press release and the Health Order please visit Contra Costa Health Services COVID-19 website.
Contra Costa, Santa Clara and San Francisco Public Health Officials Urge Employers to Consider Requiring Employee Vaccination to Promote COVID-Safe Workplaces
With COVID-19 cases rapidly on the rise, leaving unvaccinated individuals at risk for serious illness and death, the health officers of Contra Costa, Santa Clara, and San Francisco counties strongly urge all employers to consider implementing workplace COVID-19 safety policies that require their workforce to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible.
For any employees who are not yet fully vaccinated, employers must require and enforce masking under current state law. In addition, employers are encouraged to require frequent COVID-19 testing of unvaccinated employees.
