Three Phase Laurel Road Expansion Will Start Soon

Three Phase Laurel Road Expansion Will Start Soon

Three Phase Laurel Road Expansion Will Start Soon. A road expansion project on one of Oakley’s major thoroughfares will be undergoing construction soon. Laurel Road, a major arterial street that also connects directly to Highway 4, is being redesigned to facilitate better traffic flows. Once completed, this project is expected to benefit motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists. This road expansion is going to be broken down into three phases and is expected to be fully completed by fall 2019.

A portion of Laurel Road just east of O’Hara Avenue by Laurel Ballfields Park is going to expand from its current two-lane system to a four-lane system, stretching from Cloverbrook Avenue until Main Street. So while there is currently one lane per direction, there will be two lanes per direction following the project’s completion. This roadway change is anticipated to relieve road congestion and reduce traffic jams on one of the busiest thoroughfares in Oakley.
