When Is The Work on Middlefield Road Going To Finish?

Find out when you can drive through Middlefield Road in downtown Redwood City again.

A project on Middlefield Road in downtown Redwood City has rerouted traffic for almost eight months, causing some drivers to wonder when it’s going to finish.

One Patch reader reached out to me via email and asked, “When the * is the work on Middlefield Road in DT RWC going to be done?”  Great question. Thanks for asking!

Both the project site manager and the City of Redwood City expect the work on Middlefield Road at Winslow to conclude at the end of May 2013.

The street has been closed to vehicle traffic during the day for the past eight months, although it does reopen on evenings and weekends. It is always open to pedestrians and cyclists. 

“Rather than cut off access the whole time … we wanted to make it more manageable for businesses,” said Malcom Smith, Communications Manager for the City of Redwood City.  

So what are they doing? The crews are working on moving a drainage pipe to make room for a new development called Redwood Tower. That project will take about 30 months to complete.

"That project will take about 30 months to complete" That's more time then it's going to take to build the new 49ers stadium.
