Detour Routes for State Route 13/Ashby Avenue Construction PDF


The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin a construction project which involves resurfacing State Route (SR)-13/Ashby Avenue, from Hiller Drive west to San Pablo Avenue, in the City of Berkeley.

As requested by the City of Berkeley, Caltrans will perform all construction activities, which include grinding and resurfacing Monday through Friday, during the daytime hours of 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nighttime work will be limited to digout repairs at the intersections of Ashby Avenue & Telegraph Avenue, and Ashby Avenue & Shattuck Avenue. All final striping for the project may be done during daytime and nighttime hours.

The project is expected to begin in mid June 2012 and is anticipated to be completed by early fall 2012.

Prior to and during all construction activities, posting of NO PARKING signs will be displayed in areas where work will take place. Portable, changeable message signs will also be placed approaching the work zone to warn motorists of any expected or unanticipated delays along SR13/Ashby Avenue, prior to the beginning of the work.

Caltrans District 4 (Bay Area) has completed digout repairs throughout the project limits and including key intersections: Telegraph Avenue and Ashby Avenue, and Shattuck Avenue Telegraph. The Bonded Wearing Course overlay was previously scheduled to begin Monday, July 30, 2012, but has been postponed until August 16th. The original scope of work for the repaving project in Alameda County on State Route 13 in the City of Berkeley, was from Hiller Drive to San Pablo Avenue, however work from Adeline Avenue to San Pablo will be postponed until late fall.

It is the Department’s desire and commitment to minimize potential disruptions and inconveniences during this time, while making safety our top priority. Caltrans will inform the public of all scheduled and unscheduled construction events and closures.

Please contact Caltrans Public Information Officer, Gregory Townsend, at (510) 286-6115, for any questions you may have regarding this project, or other projects within Alameda County.

Motorists should allow for extra travel time through the construction zone, and are reminded to be alert for workers and "Slow for the Cone Zone”. Caltrans appreciates your patience as we work to improve the highways.
