New Traffic Signals and Ramps at Willow Road & 101

This past week Caltrans turned on new traffic signals for the intersections of Willow Road and the ramps to and from U.S. 101. The layout of the on- and off-ramps also changed with both of the southbound ramps connecting to Willow Road on the south side of the street and both of the northbound ramps connecting to Willow Road on the north side of the street. This marks a major milestone in the interchange project’s process as the contractors move into the next phase of construction. These changes will be temporary for the second out of four stages and will allow the contractors to begin construction on some of the major ramp improvements. 

City staff is actively working with Caltrans staff to better synchronize the timing of these new signals with the adjacent Caltrans signal at Willow Road and Bay Road. In addition, the City Council will receive an update on the recently installed Caltrans' traffic signals and consider potential traffic management features for the Willows neighborhood at its Nov. 14 Council meeting.

Visit the project webpage for more information about the project and stay tuned to the Construction News Updates for regular updates on construction activities and impacts.
