Niles Boulevard Bridge Construction Update

Niles Bridge Construction

Work to replace the Niles Boulevard Bridge connecting the City of Fremont and Union City continues to progress. The new bridge is being built immediately south of the existing bridge, which will remain open throughout construction. The project is anticipated to be complete spring 2017.

Weekday and weekend night work to complete the new bridge columns and install a protective shield over the rail tracks resumes on August 12 and will continue until late-September. Weekday (night) work will take place Monday – Friday, from 11 p.m. – 7 a.m. Weekend (night) work will begin Friday at 10:30 p.m. and end Saturday at 9 a.m. and then resume Saturday at 10:30 p.m. and end Sunday at 9 a.m.

Weekend and weekday night work is necessary due to the columns and protective shield being located over the BART and Union Pacific rail tracks. Weekday (day) work can take place over the tracks after the protective shield is installed.

As with any major construction project, it is important to note that anticipated work dates and times are subject to change due to weather, unforeseen conditions, and/or the availability of on-site Union Pacific Railroad flaggers and BART safety monitors.

Changeable message boards near the project site (in each direction) notify roadway users of upcoming weekend night work dates and times. Advance notice of future weekend, night and/or noisy activities will be provided as work is scheduled. Weekly updates are posted on the project website.

Community members can also sign up to receive weekly message updates by emailing or calling the project Construction Info Line at 510-355-1502. Please share this information with others who might be interested in receiving future updates.
