Project Limits: Concord Pavilion in the City of Concord to northern Hess Road intersection in Contra Costa County

Supervisory District: 4, 5

Thomas Brothers Map Reference: 593, H-4

Project Description:
The project will improve safety and reduce congestion along Kirker Pass Road by constructing a truck climbing lane in the northbound direction. The project is approximately 1 mile in length, beginning at the Concord Pavilion and ending at the northern Hess Road intersection. Pavement widening is proposed on the east side of the roadway to provide a 12-foot truck lane and 8-foot paved shoulder. Widening will require significant retaining walls due to the existing slopes and drainage adjacent to the roadway.

Proposed Schedule:

  • CEQA/NEPA approval received December 2016
  • Final Design completion Summer 2018
  • Construction beginning in 2019

Proposed Funding:
The County is seeking additional funding to complete the project.

Measure J, State Transportation Improvement Program, State Match, Local Gas Tax
Total Project Cost: $18.3 million
