[ARCHIVED] Quiet Zone Construction Update (April 2023)

Quiet Zone (3)

  • The 65th/Shellmound crossing is expected to be re-opened today, 4/12/2023, to vehicles and bicyclists. Pedestrians will continue to be detoured to the Amtrak Pedestrian Bridge until Thursday morning (4/13/23) as concrete sidewalks dry. The City of Emeryville strongly encourages residents to plan ahead prior to leaving to their destination on the north end of the City.
  • A half closure of 66th Street at the railroad crossing just east of Shellmound Street is scheduled for Thursday morning (4/13/23). The EB direction will be closed until the following Wednesday (4/19/23) when the WB direction will be closed as well. At that time next Wednesday (4/19/23), the 66th Street grade crossing will be permanently closed.
  • There will continue to be minor traffic control/delays as various phases of construction occur to complete all sidewalk, traffic signal, and RR gate arm work that is necessary at the 65th and 67th Street crossings throughout April/May.
  • New Traffic Signals at 67th/Shellmound and 67th/Hollis are expected to be installed and active in Spring/Summer 2023.

The project began construction in June 2022 and was expected to be complete in 6-9 months. An additional 6 months was added to the project timeline due to delays with Union Pacific's scope of work being installed concurrent with the City's scope of work. The City expects construction to be complete in Summer 2023. 

Establishment of the “Quiet Zone” is expected to occur in late 2023 - early 2024.
