SAN BRUNO CANAL BRIDGE REPLACEMENT (South Airport Blvd at North Access Road and 380 Freeway on-ramp)
The San Bruno Canal Bridge remains closed due to the rapidly deteriorating condition of the piles supporting the bridge. Construction to replace the bridge has begun and the new bridge is expected to open by the end of 2018. The City apologizes for the inconvenience this work has caused and is working as quickly as possible to address safety concerns. Public safety is the number one priority. Thank you for your continued patience.
Changeable message signs and detour signs are in place. These traffic control devices will be in operation for the duration of the project. Bike path and emergency access will be maintained but vehicles will be rerouted. Please follow all signage and safety personnel instructions at all times.
Please note that in an effort to help with traffic congestion, especially in the peak afternoon hours, construction traffic flaggers are present Monday through Friday between 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Project Status: The contractor continues work on the bridge deck.
