Sand Creek Interchange Project
On Friday, October 24 at 10:30am, in an event open to the public, CCTA and Caltrans will celebrate the completion of the Sand Creek Interchange project in Brentwood, including the opening of a second highway bridge over Sand Creek Road. And all-day on Saturday, October 25, shoppers can enjoy discounts of 10% or more at participating stores and restaurants in the Streets of Brentwood Shopping Center in commemoration of the interchange improvements.
The completion of this project brings much needed congestion relief to eastern Contra Costa County. In August 2013, a new eastbound bridge over Sand Creek Road and two new eastbound lanes to traffic were opened to traffic. CCTA was able to fund a second, westbound highway bridge as part of this project with cost savings realized on this construction contract and a $5 million contribution of Measure J funds.
The entire Sand Creek Interchange project includes expanding the highway from two to four lanes (two in each direction) from Lone Tree Way to Sand Creek Road, the construction of the Sand Creek Road Interchange, and the inclusion of a median wide enough to accommodate mass transit in the future (eBART). The project is part of the overall Highway 4 Corridor projects, totaling over $1.3 billion, which will greatly improve transit accessibility for the region, help reduce air pollution, and enhance the quality of life for the more than 250,000 residents of eastern Contra Costa County.
