Contra Costa County Public Works to Begin Pavement Rehabilitation Work on
Kirker Pass Road from the City of Concord/County limits to
approximately 4,200 feet North of the North Hess Road Intersection
September 2, 2020, Concord, CA – Pavement rehabilitation work is scheduled to begin on Kirker Pass Road as part of the Kirker Pass Road Northbound Truck Climbing Lane Project. Work will take place during the day and night beginning on September 7, 2020 at 9 p.m. through September 11, 2020 at 4 p.m., barring unforeseen circumstances. Work will occur on both the north and south bound lanes, between the City of Concord/County limits to approximately 4,200 feet north of the North Hess Road Intersection, a length of approximately 1.6 miles. Work includes grinding and replacing the surface course of asphalt. Work will be scheduled to minimize impacts during commute hours. Electronic message boards will alert drivers of the scheduled work. Drivers should expect delays. Current social distancing protocol will be observed.
The Kirker Pass Road Northbound Truck Climbing Lane Project will improve safety and reduce congestion along Kirker Pass Road from the Concord Pavilion to the northern Hess Road intersection by constructing a truck climbing lane in the northbound direction. Pavement widening will occur on the east side of the roadway to provide a 12-foot truck lane and 8-foot paved shoulder. Widening will require construction of six retaining walls adjacent to the roadway. The project also includes paving both the north and southbound lanes between the City of Concord/County limits to approximately 4,200 feet north of North Hess Road. The total project length is about 2 miles.
Funding for this project is provided by Measure J, State Transportation Improvement Program, State Match, Local Streets and Road Program, and gas tax revenues provided by the SB1 Road Repair and Accountability Act. More information for this project can be found at http://www.cccounty.us/pwdmap.
