During the Brentwood U-Pick Season

May 6, 2019, Brentwood, CA – Contra Costa County Public Works Department (CCCPWD) has placed a message board on Walnut Boulevard (North of Marsh Creek Road) in close proximity to the farms participating in the U-Pick season. The sign reads, “Harvest season, drive safely” to remind drivers to observe traffic laws and remain safe during the busy harvest season. Residents and U-Pick participants should expect delays during this time.

The Public Works Department encourages everyone to please obey all traffic laws and plan your route accordingly in the surrounding area. The U-Pick season has over 180,000 visitors each year.
