Late-night closures on I-580 two weekends in July for West Dublin construction

BART and Caltrans will need to close a portion of eastbound Interstate 580 (I-580) in the Dublin/Pleasanton area beginning 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 10 through 9 a.m. Sunday, July 11.  Off-ramps from eastbound I-580 to northbound and southbound Interstate 680 (I-680) will also be closed.  These closures are necessary to accommodate construction crews as they install bridges perpendicular to the highway, which will provide access to the new West Dublin/Pleasanton Station.

“We are continuing our bridge installation work very late at night on July 10 and 11 and then again on July 17 and 18 in a time frame that has the least impact to our community,” BART Board Member John McPartland said.  McPartland represents the Tri-Valley area. While segments of I-580 and on-ramps to I-680 are closed, drivers will need to use the designated street detours.


JULY 10 & 11 AND JULY 17 & 18 CLOSURE DETAILS

Dublin/Pleasanton – Eastbound Interstate 580 will have two lanes closed from 11 p.m. Saturday, July 10 to 9 a.m. Sunday, July 11.  Ramp closures during this time include the Eastbound I-580 San Ramon Rd. / Foothill Rd. on-ramp and the eastbound I-580 off-ramps to northbound and southbound I-680.

From 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. there will be a full closure of eastbound I-580 at the West Dublin-Pleasanton BART Station.  Traffic will be detoured.
