West End Road Closed for December

Eric Kos The City placed detour signs in front of Sherman Street, while construction continues until the end of the month.

West End Road Closed for December

Starting Monday, Dec. 6, through Thursday, Dec. 30, there will be no through traffic on Sherman Street, between Buena Vista Avenue and Wind River Road.

The road closure is to accommodate for construction around the historic Del Monte building. The construction includes building framing and Clement Street paving activities. The intersection at Atlantic Avenue and Sherman Street will be reconfigured to allow continues, including the Clement Avenue extension.

The road closure and detours will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Message boards are installed with road closure and detour information. Trucks will use Grand and Lincoln instead of Grand, Encinal, Central and Webster.

There will be a detour for automobiles on Buena Vista Avenue. Pedestrians and bicyclists are asked to go around the eastern side of the Del Monte building along Entrance Road.

Intermittent lane closures will continue around the project to provide a safe working area. When possible, please consider using an alternate route to alleviate traffic in the neighborhood.

Access to Jean Sweeney Open Space Park and the parking lot off Sherman will remain open.

City of Alameda The city released a map with the locations of detours to maneuver around the Sherman Street and Atlantic Avenue street closure.
