NOTE: There be NO OVERNIGHT CLOSURES OR NIGHT ROADWORK next week (from Sunday Aug. 11 through Thursday, Aug. 15.)

SPECIAL ADVANCE NOTIFICATION: THERE WILL BE TWO OVERNIGHT FULL CLOSURES: Monday, Aug. 19 and Tuesday, Aug. 20—9 pm to 7 am each, to set girders.

Overnight closure for tonight canceled, tomorrow’s still set.

** UPDATE #40-A **

THE SCHEDULED OVERNIGHT CLOSURE FOR TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, HAS BEEN CANCELLED. TOMORROW’S (THURSDAY) OVERNIGHT CLOSURE IS STILL SCHEDULED!

Also, thanks to the efforts of Ken Wright, a new procedure is in place for weekends. Dan (the project engineer) plans to have three flaggers on-site every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM until the end of the summer. The flaggers have been instructed to allow the signals to control the traffic as much as possible and provide flagging when the traffic volumes get too high or if the signals malfunction. This strategy is mainly in consideration for worker safety; the less they are exposed to live traffic the safer the situation. The flaggers are employees of the contractor, Golden State Bridge Inc., and the cost is about $8000 per weekend. The money comes from the project’s contingency balance and was authorized by contract modification.
