Computer Graphic of Fair Oaks Bridge Project

Since 2012, the City has been working with the community and Caltrans towards rehabilitating the Fair Oaks Avenue Bridge. Located between Kifer Rd and Evelyn Ave, the bridge crosses over the Caltrain tracks and Hendy Ave. Once complete, this safety enhancement project will maintain the same number of automobile lanes, add a new separated sidewalk on the east side of the bridge, and widen the bridge’s existing bicycle lanes.

The project environmental review was completed in March 2015. Project construction activities started on June 1, 2020. Please refer to the “Project Details” page for more information.


Night work over the Caltrain tracks will be required on Saturday, 5/8, Sunday, 5/9, and Monday, 5/10. Work will start at 10:00 pm and end at 7:00 am the next day.

These activities are necessary to demolish the pedestrian overcrossing over the Caltrain tracks when all tracks are closed. Concrete saws and a crane will be used for the work. Hammering of concrete is not planned or anticipated, but it may become necessary for a short period of time to remove certain portions of old infrastructure. All other hammering work will be performed in the daytime.

Every effort will be made to minimize noise impacts from these activities.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, contact Matt McKeon, Construction Manager, at 707-391-2656.
