On-ramp Closure: Eastbound Mission Blvd. to Northbound I-680

This Thursday night 4/10 and Friday morning 4/11, the Eastbound Mission Blvd. to Northbound I-680 on-ramp in the Warm Springs neighborhood of Fremont will be closed between midnight and 5:00 a.m.

In order to complete essential elements of our regional water pipeline upgrade, it is necessary to close and slightly re-align this on-ramp. This will allow construction activities to continue alongside this busy commuter corridor without further impacting traffic.

Why a Night Time Closure? 
Closing the on-ramp late at night causes the least impact to commuters and local residents.
The pipelines we are upgrading are located directly under the I-680 freeway and the on/off-ramps of Mission Blvd. In order to access the pipeline, a phased traffic handling plan is being put in place. The SFPUC, Caltrans and other governmental agencies have worked together closely on this phased traffic approach plan to limit impacts to drivers and the surrounding community.

Detour Information 
To detour during this five-hour on-ramp closure, use Warm Springs Blvd. (North), and make a right at Auto Mall Parkway to merge onto the I-680 North.

Trucks should take the Warm Springs Blvd. detour or turn left at Durham Rd. to access I-680 before the Mill Creek bridge.

The red line shows on-ramp to be closed at midnight on Thursday night.
The on-ramp will re-open on Friday morning, April 11 at 5:00 a.m., shown in blue.
