News from the city about a temporary closure of the Lower Guadalupe River Trail:
Work by the City of San Jose on a roadway and by PG&E on its gas system in North San Jose will temporarily prevent trail access along the Lower Guadalupe River Trail from Tasman Drive to Gold Street.
The City has awarded a construction contract to replace the existing undercrossing at Tasman Drive. The new structure will be about three feet higher than its current elevation and will make this section of trail less susceptible to tidal flooding. Work is expected to begin August 12 and extend through October.
A section of the east levee north of Tasman Drive will also be removed this summer as PG&E replaces a section of a gas transmission pipeline as part of a mandated pipeline safety program. PG&E expects to conduct its work between August 25 and October 30. The trail closure will also prevent access to ramp leading to the interconnected Highway 237 Bikeway.
During the closures, trail users are encouraged to use adjacent roadways and sidewalks, or they may use the gravel maintenance road along the west bank of the river. The City is working closely with PG&E and the Santa Clara Valley Water District to minimize the duration and construction impacts.
