UFES Traffic Update – May 25, 2022

Saratoga Drive to Open Temporarily in June

The City will temporarily open Saratoga Drive in the vicinity of the UFES project starting in early June 2022 to accommodate upcoming events at the San Mateo County Event Center. Saratoga Drive will need to close again in early July 2022 so that the remainder of construction activities related to the UFES project can be completed.

Please watch for signs indicating traffic pattern changes ahead of the temporary opening and again ahead of the re-closure in early July.

We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we make steady progress toward the completion of our sewer system improvements.
