UFES Traffic Update – September 16, 2022

Saratoga Drive Lane Restrictions and Closures to start in October 2022

After a productive summer, the City needs to implement new traffic restrictions and closures for Saratoga Drive to continue with the remainder of UFES construction activities.

Starting Oct. 3, 2022, the City will implement minor traffic restrictions on Saratoga Drive in the vicinity of the San Mateo County Event Center. More significant lane closures will be required starting in mid-October.

Please watch for signs indicating traffic pattern changes, and allow extra time in your travel plans to accommodate the new traffic patterns.

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

Please visit our UFES Project Page for complete project details.
