1st Street Bridge Surface Testing and Repair Work

As part of the Federal government’s Coronavirus Guidance for America, transportation infrastructure is considered an “Essential Critical Infrastructure.” Additionally, transit capital projects are not subject to the State of California’s Stay at Home order, therefore Metro construction projects continue to progress.


Workers will be testing and repairing the 1st Street Bridge deck surface as needed. Work will occur during non-peak hours from 9am to 3:30pm. Traffic flow will be limited to one lane in each direction during this work. Lane closures will be intermittent. Some weekend work will be required.
