Vintage Park Overcrossing Temporary Bridge Closure
For Immediate Release: January 19, 2016

The City of Foster City has announced that Vintage Park Drive will be closed between Metro Center Boulevard and Chess Drive in order to complete necessary repairs to the Vintage Park Overcrossing Bridge which crosses over Highway 92. This closure is expected to begin in February 2016 and continue for four to five months during construction. A detour will be in place for the duration of construction and signage will be placed prior to bridge shutdown.

The Vintage Park Overcrossing Project (CIP 301-621) will correct settlement at both ends of the Vintage Park Overcrossing Bridge by removing the bridge deck and the existing fill underneath, replacing it with light-weight fill, installing flexible expansion joints to protect the underground pipeline, and re-constructing the bridge deck. The project will also include removal and replacement of the existing adjacent sidewalk, curb, gutter, crosswalk and medians to match the new grade. The project will return the bridge approaches to their initial design grades, re-establishing a smooth transition between the overcrossing and the approach ramps for vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

The City Council considered both full and partial street closure alternatives and determined that a full closure with detours would be the least disruptive, since either scenario would create significant disruption in the area and a full closure would reduce the duration of the construction activities by an estimated 4 months. Thank you for your patience as there is always inconvenience when a major roadway must be shut down for repairs.
